Jeez guys, it's not like they're writing the bird off or anything... just repainting her!
Yeah it's sad, but I've had many wonderful flights aboard 7005 and look forward to many more. There will most likely be a commemorative title somewhere on the fuselage and a commemorative plaque at the bulkhead of 2L.
It's not like it's a surprise... I mentioned this way back in September of 2001.
It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.
