I'm not so sure on how great this new retro looks. However, just like the new OX/AS or UA/CO schemes it'll grow on me! Excellent photo.

This is a great photo of a questionable paint scheme. why wasn't this done when they flew the 737's? great angle, great shot, beautiful light...

Oh fooey. Classic schemes suits this bird well! Wonderful splash of color against a steel gray-looking sky caught in a pretty clean and fully airborn configuration. Excellent job! 5*

Great picture, great livery, great airline! Is it just me or are most retro liveries more attractive then the regular ones? I would love to see some 747s and 777 painted in this livery!

Lovely but stop doing this on the Airbuses! Just like USAirways... c'mon now a 757 or 777 or 747. just about any other aicraft would wear these special liveries better!

Take's me back to the days when United was the main airline out of Cleveland, when I was a kid in the 1960's. I think it's great!

Unbelievably beautiful. To the previous post: what exactly is 'questionable' about this?

This Livery is Stunning! I cannot believe UA can't see that this bold retro livery is 10X better than their original! Should have been on a 737 however, we understand that they need to get them into continental livery before changing into a retro for a day! Happy Birthday United :)

They should have put this Livery on one of their Boeing 747s.

Oh my, that brings back great memories of these colors on their 727-22C's. Fantastic! Yes, I'm old :)

Nice, but wish this was on the only fleet type that is still in UA's (not including Co's) fleet that operated when this livery was around........The 747! Hopefully they can do the late 70's to 80's orange livery on a 757!

Looks great! I love this livery so much; it would look nicer on a 757, though, whose longer fuselage would better reflect the classic DC-8s that wore it so well.

Why isn't this on the 757?

Great livery and it looks even better up close in person. but it should have been painted on a B757 like they originally told employees it would be instead of an A320.

...and, y'know, I'd be satisfied to see this on a 744. The 741 Friend Ship in this livery was my first widebody. Thanks for the memories!
