9) Peter Max .... Will The MAXness Never End?

Tue Sep 28, 2004 9:24 am

Thread 8 is full. Time for Nine...
To repeat from the end of last thread..
Due to Ship 012 going belly up in IAH this morning, EWR was short a 777. So CO 51 EWRIAH was swapped down to a 757. Ship 014 was rerouted thusly...
9/27 .... EWR 90 TLV
9/28 TLV 91 EWR
9/29 EWR 9 NRT

.... Oh.. and the phrase 'belly up' is just a yankee expression... It's out of service due Mx.

Good Image Mr. G.
Mr. T. Ship 001 is still in the paint shop ...

On the question of the threads being 'full' at 30 ...BigPhl has a point. That number was arbitrary on my part. So I put it to you, the readers.... Should 'full' be 40? 50?. You tell me.

Iahcsr,

IMO 30 is ok. Smile Just a thought, is it possible that another ship receives a sort of PM colourscheme? Would be nice if it was ship 001. Big grin

"is it possible that another ship receives a sort of PM colourscheme? "

That thought had occurred to me as well. If something like that is in the works, it's a well kept secret. Ship 001 is planned to ferry from AMA to MCO on the 30th. So we will know soon enough.

As for Max..

"what is it supposed to represent? "

That's the question I've asked myself for the last five years.
I wish I knew.....

"What time will it arrive and depart LGW on Thursday??? "

CO 34 is scheduled to arrive LGW at 0655hrs. Depending on which flight it's assigned to depart LGW (35, 29, or 5) it will leave sometime between 0930-1200hrs.

"Ship 001 is going to be named for Gordon Bethune 1"

Now you've gone and spoiled the surprise....

I'd like to see 006 painted in the old color scheme with the name on the front. Gotta dig and find my pic of the DC-10-30 060 in HNL many years ago, you can see it plain as day on the front... "Robert F. Six".  Big grin

Fat chance of that happening, of course, but I can always wish.

My Buddy, TrvlingFool, just informed me that I must disappoint both Nate and Chris as some unknown person at 1600 Smith St. has changed PM's routing for the 30th..
Ship 014
9/30 NRT 8 EWR 56 CDG
10/1 CDG 57 EWR 51 IAH

... EWRIAH...Hmmmm... Guess that thrust reverser for Ship 012 must have finally arrived....

Hot diggity. I'm booked to ride CO23 EWR-IAH on 10/1.. maybe I try to standby on CO51 instead!

Wishful thinking, of course, I'd miss my IAH-AUS connection. Think I can arrange to be at the gate when 57 arrives from CDG with camera in hand, since it arrives 1200, and I don't depart until 1355.  Big thumbs up

Ok, so CO51/014 arrives IAH too late on 10/1 to go anywhere else that night. Means there's only 5 flights it could take on 10/2. 7/NRT, 50/EWR, 34/LGW, 10/CDG, 4/LGW. It's been to NRT, EWR and CDG recently, so I'll wager a Starbucks that it goes to LGW as 34 on 10/2.  Big grin

Only two 777s RON in IAH. So 51's aircraft has to either turn 7 to NRT or 50 to EWR. 34 has to turn off either 6 or 35. 4 and 10 can turn from 6,35,5, or 11. This leaves one aircraft to RON along with 51 to make up the next day's 7 and 50. Hope that makes sense.

A 737-800 would look great on those special colors, sorta like a "Peter Max" junior  Big grin As I'm not a big fan of the Continental livery, I can't help to stare at every pic of Peter Max's 777 I come across. It's just simply stunning. Even better, both sides of the aircraft are painted different! Unfortunately the 777 service MCO had was downgraded therefore I've never gotten to see PM in the flesh.

The RON thing makes perfect sense. I was just offering the friendly wager of guessing that 014 would go to LGW as 34 instead of back to EWR as 50 or to NRT as 7, since it's the last 777 to arrive that day at 1929. Since 5 and 6 arrive within 20min of each other, presumably the earlier arrival would be turned to make the last 777 departure that day, the later one would RON and depart the next day as the first 777 departure of that following day, likely as 7 to NRT.

I know, I'm just the dumb pax trying to outguess the folks at 1600 Smith... anthough I thought most of this stuff was done out of the Allen Parkway offices.  Big grin

Bummer.. but thx IAHcsr for letting us know the correction for PM's route today. I am still waiting for PM to fly CO 35 route as they usually get the "photographer friendly" runway 27 as CO 6 almost always is assigned runway 26L. Will have to try next week  Smile

Allen Parkway?... Oh... Yeah. What we use to call AGC. CO HQ moved from there several years ago. Things that were spread out all over Houston were combined into two (walkway connected) buildings at 1600 Smith and 600 Jefferson.

And there is nothing to be 'dumb' about once you understand the flow pattern.

Actually Peter Max is an artist, not a plane. He designs the livery for the aircraft and then it is painted to that design. Enter Peter Max in you search engine and see his work.

I am trying to remember the airline ( maybe Braniff) that had very wild and sometimes attractive color schemes. It seems like the originator was not an artist, but a cosmetic company or expensive womens fashion designer. This was like maybe 15 years ago. Does anyone have the answers?
Also Peter Max is best known for his sports figures and scenes. A good friend who owns an upscale art gallery in San Francisco has met him and seen him a few times at gallery openings and she tells me he is one of the most pompous and arrogant a**holes she has ever encountered. Just a little trivia for you livery lovers.

Wow... This thread got busy all of a sudden... But I think I'll let it run to 50 this time... If for no other reason then needing to think up a title for 10 'Peter Max .... (fill in the blank)' .

The only name that comes to mind for the Braniff question is Calder (sp).

And yes Ms. Bev, I will working on the 'project' until the 8th. But I can say that so far P.M. has visited CDG the most (5) since 8 Sept. TLV only twice. And it's sitting over here at E18 at this very moment too.

LX23...just seems kind of lame to follow around a single aircraft because of its paintjob...
Make that totally lame....so you shut up...you..you..you..big bully!
 Smile

Again, what's the significance? It's unusual...but not pretty. Is it suppose to commemorate something? It's a pre 9/11 design..so I guess that kills that theory.

Thanks Lahcsr, but Calder designed mobils as pieces of art and was not a painter. Greg I agree with you and LX23 you were quite rude in telling him to "shut up." I believe you could have used a more civil way to express yourself.
Sad, but the era of the dignified and so very polite English folks seems more and more like a a thing of the past. Like the Concord.
