Mystery 757 At DEN

Wed May 05, 2004 5:43 am

Quick question:

Yesterday on arrival from SFO on UA, I noticed a 757 parked northwest of the C concourse (just south of the Continental hangar). It was all white with a black tail that continued down to the bottom of the fuselage. It actually looked like a National 757 with its "rainbow N" removed. It had titles near the front of the fuselage but I couldn't read them. Anyone know more about this aircraft?

ATA has a new one. I thought it would be in our colors when it went in service. I have no idea?

Just a guess, but was this the bird you saw?

Have seen this aircraft through Denver several time for over a year now operating charter flights by Ryan International Airlines.

Hope this helps,

It's United's soon to be announced carrier-within-a-carrier-within-a-carrier. I understand it's for those who think Ted has too many frills. This one will be called "Ed"....  Big grin

Geez, you guys are quick  Smile

Yeah, that is definitely it. I guess it just looked black from my vantage point. Was this an ex-National 757, though?

I wouldn't mind flying a 757 to Cancun instead of ratty old 727 or MD-80.

Hey Kurt Glad I could help....Looks like this bird first came online with Air Transat in November 1992 least from Ansett Worldwide Aviation Services, she flew as C-GTSE and while actual ownership changed a few times she still flew with Air Transat. On 5-28-02 her Canadian registration was cancelled and in November 2002 FINOVA Capital Corporation registered this bird N310FV, then leased/operated by Ryan International Airlines in January 2003.

I actually grabbed a picture of that on March 29th but never bothered to upload it. It was parked northwest of the C concourse, however.
