Well, that's sad....

N77014 will always be Mad Max even after 2007 and the new paint job! Hopefully i'll be lucky enough to fly him in 10 days (TLV - EWR)

That's sad! Got to see her only a few times, and never really got a nice photo of it. Oh well, hopefully one day before it's back in the normal livery.

I'm getting pretty much convinced the CO aircraft scheduling dept does not like BRU  Silly I only see LGW, CDG and NRT...Let's hope she'll fly to BRU a couple of times before she gets repainted.

Best regards,

Shame this piece of art will soon be painted over, only to revert to CO's bland and boring mainline livery.

My Dad is going SNA-IAH-CDG-BOM for work tomorrow.

My girlfriend is on a cruise with her family and took CO on MFE-IAH-LGW and is coming home a in few weeks the same way.

Maybe one of the two will fly PM.

I sure am sad to see the Peter Max livery go. Anyone know why CO decided to revert back to standard livery?

Hello,

do you know if Peter Max is coming to EWR on 7/19? I see it from my apartment when on 4R arrival. It is always to please to see this beauty!

I will be spotting then and I would like to have one more memory of this color scheme before I leave for Europe.

Cheers,
Andrej

PS I am sad that this nice plane will go back to "normal".

Saw it for the first this tuesday in EWR as I was waiting for the flight to DTW. Was nice to see something else except for the usual CO livery.

I am by no means trying to stir the pot...but we don't know what livery the plane will be painted in, do we? And, the plane isn't reverting back to the standard livery as it has never worn the full livery. It delivered to BF Goodrich (at the time) in PAE in an all-silver body, CO rudder scheme with the reg. taped on (photo proof exists).

Your right, it was the 11th my bad. With the amount of Continental diversions to SWF this summer every time I have seen a 777-200 go in I start to freak out hoping it wasn't Peter Max since I am down here in Peru at the moment and would hate to miss her there. I'll be back in a week and spotting at EWR in a couple of weeks so I hope to actually finally get a good picture of her after the many times seeing her.

AAAHH!! Maybe that means there will be just enough time to start one more thread (even though you said this is the last) after this one!!!:D
Peter Max threads are part of the joy of being an a.netter, I don't care about what some people think - we'll have to find another special livery plane to track around the way you track Max and then a whole new series of threads could be started...
That gives me just that much more time to try to catch Peter. Smile
