Remark Photographer
N109UW (cn 1065) The inaugurations have come to an end, but with a big bang! PHX held the biggest party for the entire flight schedule, and was a treat to attend! Here you can see the water canon salute as the merged airlines' new scheme rolls onto the ramp in Phoenix at the America West hangar. This aircraft brings a full cabin filled with all crew in different uniforms and the CEO's of both America West and US Airways! I must say, after seeing it in person at up close, I really do like the new scheme!

What an excellent moment for both US Airways and America West who will form what will surely be an excellent new carrier. I can't wait to see the whole US fleet in this beautiful new color scheme.

Airplane well framed by the water cannon. Nicely shot photo of a celebration on the tarmac, something rarely seen these days.

I'm sad to see the America West Airlines name go into the history books. I hope this merger is beneficial to all concerned.

I am so glad US Airways changed it colors, those old colors were so boring! I never liked the old Livery, but this one is a major improvement!
