UA New Livery 747 On Its Way To SYD

Wed Dec 29, 2004 6:01 pm

United flight 863 departed SFO for Sydney a couple of hours ago (Wednesday December 28th at 11 pm San Francisco time). It was the 747 with the new paint job. Just a heads up for anyone Down Under who wants to get a glimpse of it.

Sorry about the wrong day and date. In a bit of a fog last night.

At least the information got passed along

N196UA landed on rwy 16R around 40 mins late in overcast weather. It then took off rwy 16R in semi-cloudy weather as UA870 to San Fran and Chicago, though and an hour later when the LA/NY flight UA840 left, that was in full sun!

Thank you again for the info. Much appreciated.
