Western's bare metal scheme was a nice looking twist from the original white scheme. Take a look:

At least you don't have to strip the lap seams to inspect them.

Short lived airline, but I remember seeing these in MLI and DSM back in 1999.

Suprised no one's posted a 732 in AA's livery since they are the bare metal airline.

Interesting to see the 732 in AA colors. Does anyone know how long AA operated these baby Boeings? A great plane!

They got the 732/733's from the Air Cal purchase, the 732's left the fleet in 1989 IIRC, some went to an incarnation of BN. The 733's were retired in 1990 or by early 1991, most went to WN, some still with AA registration suffixes. Both were small fleets at AA and were gone with AA's closure of the intra-California routes in the early Nineties.
