Interesting A/C At EWR Question

Mon Aug 27, 2007 2:17 am

I just got back from RDU and on my way down there while I was waiting for my CO flight I saw what appeared to be an ex-DL 737-200. The plane was completely stripped except for the tail rudder which had the wavy gravy scheme as well as one of the engines which still had a little bit of DL paint. This was around 10am on Thursday 8/23.

Also last night when I arrived in EWR there was a plane at terminal B where DL/YX/NW are that had a blue tail that had XA on it. I couldn't tell though which airline it was. I saw it taxiing for departure around 8:20pm. I think it was a 737-300.


If anyone has any information on these planes I'd love to know. I've never heard of XA and am very curious as to who ws operating that 732.

The XA is Xtra Airways flying for Myrtle Beach Direct Air and the other is likely a Sky King 737

Thank you very much! It was dark when I arrived last night so I didn't see the rest of the titles on the side of the side of the plane. How often does XA operate down to MYR from EWR and where can those flights be booked?


Also where does Sky King fly to from EWR?
