Re: Southwest Fleet/Network Thread - 2019

Three more have been put out to pasture in the last week. N703SW ferried from ATL to VCV for storage pending sale. N766SW & N761RR both ferried ATL-GWO for scrap. I believe that makes nine aircraft retired YTD. As a sidenote, it also appears as though all three aircraft that were in Victorville ...

Any chance you'd explain this? I've been living under a rock most of my life and don't understand.


It's a reference to a country song. "Fly Over States" by Jason Aldean.

So, have any actually been repaired and put back in service yet?


I don't know about other carriers but two of the three WN aircraft have been repaired and returned. Though one went straight from VCV to PAE for a scheduled heavy check.

Re: WN Downgraded based on aquisition speculation

1. I love the animal farm-style boarding zone system! It's the least stressful of any boarding system I've been forced to use (unless I'm flying first class on a legacy carrier). 2. As for acquiring another airline, I'm sure SWA can afford such a purchase, but essentially the SWA we know (and some ...

Re: Southwest Fleet/Network Thread - 2019

Does anyone know if WN has completely halted Heart livery repaints since the MAX grounding or have they continued? Heart Livery repaints have continued all year despite the grounding. Though for most of the year there has only been one line in GEG, they recently resumed repaints at VCV as well. N95...

Re: 737MAX Storage, Where are they?

They are parked on the ramp between Million Air and the 2 large Paint Hangars. They may very well be parked there. But again, the WN aircraft that are visible from the satellite view of Google Earth / Google Maps are not the Max. Unfortunately I don't know how to link a screengrab here, but you can...

Re: 737MAX Storage, Where are they?

There ARE over 20 SWA B38M's parked up at VCV to go along with the retired B733's. VCV has no former SWA B735's. I'm well aware that all 34 of the WN 7M8s are currently in long-term storage at VCV. I was pointing out that they are not visible on Google Earth. The imagery was taken before the ground...

Re: 737MAX Storage, Where are they?

You can see most of the South West MAXs on Google Earth at George AFB (Victorville) east side apron. At least 20 of them there. EDIT: There are 12 more (not sure if all MAX) just north west of that cluster too. The Southwest aircraft visible on Google Earth are not the 7M8, they're the retired 733s...

Re: Southwest Fleet/Network Thread - 2019

Longtime lurker, first-time poster. Looks like in addition to N759GS going to GWO, N7714B is also at PAE undergoing its lease-return heavy check. I'm unsure if it will be ferried elsewhere after the check is complete. Look for N756SA to likely be the next retirement - probably to GYR. Most of the el...
