United Airline Special Paint Scheme

Tue May 30, 2006 1:08 pm

something that would be nice to see is united paint some of the 767, 757, 747, and the 737 in a retro paint scheme. that would be nice.

does UA qualify for a retro scheme??

and what if united had one plane that was bare metal with the blue paint, that would be so nice.

Although not cost effective or practical for them I'm sure...I would love to see each aircraft type in one of every paint scheme that they have used.

They would surely have an interesting collection if they ever did a retro program.

I was in FRA at the weekend, and saw the retro LH A320 taxi pass a New Livery UA747 and commented then that it would be great if UA undertook a retro on a 747 or 777.

personally I'm glad that's not the case, the old UA colors with the Orange made it seem as if someone vomited recently...
Ok, wait for the RJ to pass, cleared to push tail south Mike, and you're cleared to spin #2 in the push.

I think it's a little too soon to bring this one back. When US made the retro liveries, they didn't include the polished metal livery because they only got rid of it 10-15 years ago.
