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.
