2 United 737's Headed To The Desert

Tue Mar 08, 2005 3:26 am

Just as informational reasons, looks like at least 2 UA 737 are headed to the desert. I noticed a 733 going to Vistorville and a 735 headed to Goodyear.
Flight 9932 SFO-VCV a 733
Flight 9934 SFO-GYR a 735
Anyone have tail numbers for these?..........Thanks!

Dont have the particular tails of todays ferries, however as of the beginning of the month UA had 29 -500s and 67 -300s in service.

I suspect the aircraft headed to VCV is for long term storage, while the GYR aircraft will under go somesort of maintenance or modification work at the facilities at GYR for either United or prior to onward delivery to another airlines.

Below are the tail numbers that were active as of the begining of March.



In other United B737 news, the airline today announced that AAR Aircraft Services has been selected as the sole heavy maintenance provider for the airlines 737 fleet thru 2010.
Somewhat ironic is that AAR will be making use of United ex Indianapolis maintenance facilities to handle this contract.
