That particular aircraft seems to be here at LAX
quite often...at least several days a week. I must say I quite like HP
's uniquely-painted aircraft, however while it is a nice break from the normal HP
scheme, I still have never been quite fond of the "Ohio" paint job. I think it is my least favorite of the bunch.
Call me crazy, but HP
could do so much better with a new, fresh paint job. If there was any way they could update their font (so "America West" doesn't look so smashed) and the colors they choose for their aircraft, it would be quite a nice change. There's just something about the teal-green and the jagged wavy lines in the tail and on the fuselage that just doesn't look right. The right colors and design (perhaps a new corporate logo) could really bring out and represent the "west" in America West. It's just my honest opinion on the matter
Of course we all have our own likes and dislikes when it comes to paint schemes and I would love to hear what others think of not only the Ohio plane but of HP
's colors in general.
It's an entirely different kind of flying; all together.
