United 767 With New Star Alliance Paint

Tue Jan 20, 2004 12:38 pm

N653UA/ Nose number 6353 leaving the paint shop for ORD on Jan. 20th. This has the new Star Alliance paint on it, like the LH, TG, and others have had. First few days of the aircraft's routing will be:

945-20 ORD-DEN
554-20 DEN-IAD
861-20 IAD-GRU
834-21 GRU-ORD
105-21 ORD-LAX
904-22 LAX-JFK-LHR
957-23 LHR-JFK

And so on...
Measure to the millimeter, mark with a crayon, cut with an axe.

Anyone have a pic of it yet?
Is UA going to paint a 777 into new Star colours?

Cheers,
Kaz

Yeah... come on spotters... work your magic! we need some pics of this bird!

And why does it have to be a 763? In my opinion it should have been a 772.

The debate continues... Starwood or Hyatt... which is better

Will the titles (United Airlines) be the Times New Roman variety or the newer Arial Black type?

Like you said Bristol1200, just like LH and others painted their B767s in "Star" colors.

I guess the B767 is the "International Representative" for Star Alliance.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Guys, Aaron here from Denver. Alex Kroychik shot the new Star Alliance scheme this afternoon here in Denver. I saw the shots and they are wonderful. Look for it on the headlines sometime late this evening or early tomorrow. Alex said he will upload when he gets home.

Later

767 is boring. 777 or even 744 would be sweet.

Thank you for plugging my picture, Fly777UAL. It was an absolute thrill to go to work 3 hours early and nailing this bird.

Thank you again,

Looks very nice! Well Done!

Air Canada supposely has painted its Boeing 767-300 into those same colors.
Back in November its -200 series had the repaint.
I will head up tomorrow and see what happens.

And United has a new color design in the works?? HOT DAMM! I gotta see how this will become..
Follow @kimbo_snaps on Instagram or bokimon- on Flickr to see more pics of me and my travels.

kinda dull, but consistant with the rest of the Star Fleet. I do love that black tail with the Star Logo... classic and kinda evil looking.

ORDPARK- thanks for all your contributions to this site, you rock. Is N775UA a 763 as well? What's the internal fin number? (usually it's one more digit)

An-225: good work with the photo!

Oh, and I forgot to thank you all for responses and the information which made the shot possible  Smile. Thank you all so much. By the way, does anyone know where N775UA will be going after it receives its new paintjob? I can probably check the rotation at work, but I am not at work yet.
