US Airways N727UW

Sun Mar 20, 2005 3:08 am

I photographed N727UW this afternoon in DUB but all the markings, 'US Airways' were removed. It did not got to the terminal building but parked on a stand far from the terminal.
Does anyone have any information about the aircraft, i.e. sold etc.

Thanks

I believe that plane left our hangar a few days ago. I saw it sitting on the gate yesterday morning. The only markings that should be left are a few gray stripes on the rudder. We removed everything else. I believe the final destination is Germany.

This is one of about ten ex-US Air A319s owned by GECAS and reportedly going to Germanwings. N726US has already been at Dublin for several weeks and hopefully the others will come to Dublin for preparation too.
