Allegheny Retro Headed To DCA Right Now!

Mon Apr 24, 2006 12:57 am

Heads up DCA spotters/photogs:
OK, I know DCA gets lots of US 319s, so you've probably seen it, but I thought I would share.
I just saw it leave TPA, headed to DCA, should be there around 1:20. Guess it'll hand around there until 2ish.

Happy spotting  Smile

Thought it was in the paint shop getting repainted?
Or was I mistaken?

The only pics of N745VJ on A.net that I see are of the OLD Allegheny paint job, not the revised one.

Well I haven't smoked pot in 14 years, so I doubt that I was hallucinating.  wink

They're also changing the size of the blue stripe and the black nose I believe...

They announced they were sending it back to the paint shop, but I am not aware of a date. Y'all stop and think because he says he saw it that maybe, just maybe it has not been sent to the paint shop yet?? Haha...

It was at SAN a few nights ago. So yeah...

Does anyone here know the paint shop schedule and which paint shop it will go to? My guess is Roswell, NM or AMA??
