Need Help With An Airline Identification Please

Tue Jul 31, 2012 3:34 pm

Sorry but I have to describe what I saw as I was unable to get any pictures of it. I was at BWI on Sunday for an Orioles game and did some spotting afterward and saw a 757 with winglets parked in the general cargo/charter ramp section. It was white with various stripes of gray and blue, especially on the tail. At first glance it looked like the National cargo color scheme, but it had no name on it. I saw it take off and wondered if it was a charter for either the Orioles or the Athletics as both were scheduled to leave town. Any ideas as to what it was?

I presume this was the aircraft in question?

According to planespotters.net it is operated by Pace Airlines.

Here you go. It's owned by MLW Aviation, which does a lot of sports charters, among other things. They left for OAK that night.
