COOL, you know it took me four weeks to figure out what the heck arrived at 10ish with those weird tails, turned out to be frontier's last arrival for the night. At night it gets kinda hard to see things.

Does ther 732 have the range tof ly PHX-STL or LAS-STL N/S?? I didn't realize that, load must be low for that flight. Thats rare for America West!!! STL-PHX is one fo the highest markets in the field. But anyways off the point...lol Cool sight to see, only 732 we get si WN to MCI and HOU(sometimes)

Atrude,
The 737-200 can typically fly about 1900nm, however with the right engines, loads, and reserves you could take one over 2000 nm easily.

Edit: The distance from PHX-STL is 1262nm according to the great circle mapper, so effectively a 732 could fly from PHX-STL, turn around and fly 2/3 of the way back to Pheonix if it had to.

Question

Why is this special? -200s are dissapearing and we don't get them from HP often but it isn't a rare sight here. Same plane, different paint.
