PWA/Aer Lingus 737

Fri Feb 16, 2001 4:02 am

I wonder if anyone has a photo of an Aer Lingus 737 with the Pacific Western name on the fuse and their tail flash painted on. On leave from the Air Force, my newlywed wife and I boarded what we thought was a regular 'Piggly Wiggly' flight from Vancouver to Edmonton on the evening of Nov 18 1979 (still married!). Upon entering the cabin I noticed everything was green with shamrocks all over, not the norm for PWA. I asked the flight attendant what the story was as this was not Mar 17th. She informed me that this was in fact an Aer Lingus 737 leased for training? I got a glimpse of it after deplaning, although it was dark I saw that it was the Aer Lingus paint scheme but with the PWA tail flash and the Pacific Western on the fuselage sides. I would like to make a model of this, as I can print custom decals now, but at least need to know the registration, if no photo is available.
