Lately I've been thinking I should really try to take the opportunity to photograph a 737-200 while it's still possible and I think my best bet is to try to catch one of Sierra Pacific Airlines in action as there aren't many others flying around the western part of the United States. I was wondering if there's any way to predict where they will be flying at any given time. Monitoring them on Flight Aware I see flights out of Tuscon to places like Boise, Victorville, Kileen and others. I'd like to catch them sometime around the Bay Area, but have no idea how frequently that happens. I've seen a number of images taken at SJC so I assume they come in on an occasional basis.

On a broader level, does anyone know anything about Sierra Pacific's current prospects? How much longer can they continue flying the 737-200? How are they doing in terms of scaring up business?
Thanks for any insight.
