Hi All:

I was reading a great aviation column -- USAToday's Today In The Sky: and came across this:

US Airways to reveal its new look :What will US Airways' planes look like after its merger with America West goes through? The answer will come Tuesday, when the company unveils one if its Airbus A320 jets repainted in the company's new paint scheme. So far, the only word to leak out about the new design came in an email sent by US Airways management to employees. That e-mail shows a silhouette of a jet, with small cross section filled in with what the new jet's paint scheme look like. The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette describes the cross section as "showing a silvery-white top and lines that appear to resemble the waves on America West's white, turquoise and red planes. Covering the bottom of the plane are a thick navy-blue stripe and a thin red stripe — colors currently visible on US Airways' fleet." The Charlotte Observer (free registration) says the redesigned jets will have throwback features that honor US Airways' predecessors such as Piedmont and Allegheny airlines. Meanwhile, the Post-Gazette says the first hints of the new design have generated a flurry of activity on airline message boards. One member posting a message on wrote this about the glimpse offered in US Airways' e-mail to workers: "They are teasing us." Posted 6:30 a.m.

Here's the post...congratulations Flyboyaz! You're famous!
