Only a couple of weeks since posting about the absence of US Airbii in BUF,
I now see them on a regular basis. I believe these are A319's based on the size, but they look quite smart in US dark blue. Somehow, the smaller Airbus seem to lack the aesthetic appeal of the 737NG or the A330/340, but that's a personal opinion. After all, "handsome is as handsome does" and Airbus certainly sells plenty of them.
The UPS 757F has returned; this wonderful ship went right over the house early last week. On another aesthetic note, I often wonder why people criticize this craft for being "too long, too thin", ect. This a/c, like the A340, is wonderfully reminiscent of my favorite, the DC8, which incidently, I hope UPS soon brings back to BUF. UPS is about the only carrier which can bring you the DC8, 757 and the A306!
The AA 738's have now been absent from BUF for ~ 2 years now. After a rather long run of initial service here, AA has removed them and BUF has seen a monotonous parade of MD80's with the occasional F100.
There has been a notable absense of charters out of BUF; no (sadly)AirTranSat or North American visits to my knowledge this year.
Vanguard still has only weekend service with old-color 732's. No sign of any of their new MD-80's. Based on the files I've seen in the Photo Index here, these are some very smart-looking ships.
As always, best wishes to all the Buffalo expatriates out there; I'll let you know if anything noteworthy in aviation happens here.
