I know this is not extradinary news to those who work at or regularly visit big airports, but in relatively small Pensacola, Florida it was nice to see a brand spanken new AirTran 737 come into PNS yesterday. We usually see regional jets, 717's and MD-88's here that's about all, so it was exciting.
From what I understand, the 37 that came in yesterday at 1500 was loaded with military personnel and 211 bags from LAX. It was the first time I witnessed the airplane from the ramp view. The type, with winglets, has an impressive wing span for a 140 (137 to be exact) seat airplane.
I was glad to see it and hope in time we PNS will see more.
