AS New 75th Anniversary 737-800 At SEA Now (pix)

Thu Mar 08, 2007 4:22 am

Hi guys,

I am totally caught in surprise when I got off from my AS flight from SFO to SEA, and this beautiful retrojet just pulled into gate C9. I believe that it is its first day in action and lots of staffs are looking at this beautiful jet.

It is scheduled to head to ANC at gate C9 now. If I take more pictures later, I will try to upload it and send it in.

Of course, I use a compact digital camera and this is the best that it can do. Hope more AS insiders will give us more pictures later.

Enjoy,

Great pictures, Adrian, thank you for sharing! Looks cool. Was there a water canon salute?  Smile

New plane!!! Sweet! I just hope this one makes it out of SEA without dents!  Wink

Nice tribute to AS and a good looking livery.

Is that a guy on stilts near the tail of the plane? Pictures #5-6.

It is a very nice livery.
I love ASO!

Great pics! That last one almost looks like mother and baby when juxtaposed with the UA 772. Too bad it couldn't have been a day earlier, when we had sunny and 70 degrees! Oh well, it matches the Seattle weather perfectly.  Smile
