A Funny thing happened to me while looking at photos. HAHA HAHA.
I was looking at Midwest Airlines MD-80 photos, and I noticed that only ONE has the COMPLETE new scheme, and that is ship 813. Why is it that the rest of the MD80s have the old paint scheme, new titles, and new logo? How come they painted one MD80 in the current 717 scheme and then just put new titles and logos on the existing MD-80s?
