USAirways Express DC9 In New Livery?

Wed Sep 29, 2004 12:17 am

I was rather intrigued by this photo. It looks a heck of a lot like a CRJ-700, but it's listed as a DC9-32. I thought US let go of their last DC9 about 3 years ago.

It's clearly a mistake. You are right it's a CRJ-700.

It's definitely a CRJ-700.

WOW!

I knew NW retrofitted their DC-9s with the new interior's, but that is really clever of US to make their old (retired) DC-9's look like CRJ-700se LOL

The confusion is due to the last N706PS being a DC-9-32 operated By PSA. Altair, and was at one time N912VJ with USAir. Here is a photo.
