What a shame it is that the stunning blue tulip livery has been dumped in lieu of the dated Continental livery. This beautiful aircraft was painted in 2008 and abruptly stored in VCV shortly afterward. She will probably never "fly the friendly skies" again in these colors.

Cool photo, Sharpshooter! Too bad the UA tulip and the 747s are headed out.

Couldn't agree more. The new United/Continental livery is awful. Great shot though.

Dammit... and this, N196UA, was actually quite a special tulip carrier too... First -400 for UA to carry this great 'blues' scheme, and used on inauguration flight to Ho Chi Minh City in December 2004 (That's in Vietnam, yes).

Great shot - but this beautiful aircraft is n ow in Mojave and will be used as one of the Strato Launcher fuselage pods. Meaning she will have the wings removed and be joined with another 747 fuselage to make the Strato Launcher.
