Something's going wrong with the DB right now, It shows that Alex had 374 shots but looking again, he had 373 with that one missing, can the mods fix this???

That Dash-8 is one good looking Dash-8. Almost as good as the QX color scheme  Smile/happy/getting dizzy Has anyone seen the UAX E170 yet? Now, THAT is one cool looking plane. Of course, it isn't UA proper, it is operated by Chataqua's subsidiary, Republic IIRC. Can't wait to see more planes in the new color scheme. Hope we see an E120 in it soon.

Which UX carrier is flying the DHC-8's. The last DHC-8's were operated by Westair ( ACA ) ending in the early 1990's.

There are a few Saab 340s in Shuttle America's fleet that have the same new color for UA's Express. If we get one in the next few days...I'll get a photo or two posted on here.

I thought MESA was flying the RJ's for UA as well as US. Oh well if we can get a definite answer it would be nice to know.

I gotta say, I was skeptical about the new scheme, but as I see more and more aircraft rolling out in the colors, I gotta say, its growing on me...

j/k -- I LOVE it!

Per the UA-Mesa agreement, the current 15 CRJ-200s operating for UAX are supposed to leave UAX service on a one-for-one basis as each of 15 new CRJ-700s arrive. What a waste of paint--many of the CRJ-200s are freshly painted in the n/c and will only wear them for less than two years.

The new fleet looks much better on the turboprop aircraft than the 777 or 737.

So the question becomes who paid for this fresh coat of paint...and does this mean we will see some crj-700's at rap this summer....we are now a majority Mesa operated station with Skywest employees....I always wonder why UA has skywest employees with a rotation of air wisky mesa and skywest aircraft....assume it is a contract thing....

The Dash 8-200s are operated by Mesa Airlines and feed the Denver hub.
Last I checked the following aircraft are operated for UAX.
N434YV
N436YV
N444YV (WHITE C/S)
N445YV (NEW C/S)
N446YV
N448YV
N455YV
N456YV

AND THE FOLLOWING CRJ-200s
N17175 (MESA COLORS)
N17217 (OLD COLORS)
N37218 (OLD COLORS)
N75992 (NEW COLORS)
N75993 (NEW COLORS)
N75998 (NEW COLORS)
N75999 (NEW COLORS)

I BELIEVE ALL THE -700s N501MJ-N515MJ are now operating for United the only one I'm not sure of N502MJ.

We have painted 2 Mesa Dash-8's in a 'pre' New United colors scheme. At the time they where painted, UAL had not yet come up with a lay out print, so the aircraft was painted with only the basic colors. Blue and white only...No strips or tail logo.
The first 'new' color scheme UAL Express EMB-145 was delivered today and should be sitting in STL right now. It is the former Swiss International HB-JAJ. I have a few personal shots and I think it looks really good.
