So, American Airlines always said they were gonna have a heritage livery. Does this include the Silverbird Livery?

They're just NOT going to repaint one....BOOM...DONE !

N918NN, ..I believe.

Plus...they already have one in the lightning bolt. Used to be N951AA...I forget what the reg is now.

A quick Google finds both are repainted in the new livery :(

N905NN is wearing the Astrojet livery now. I saw her a couple days ago, she's still around.

Here's your answer. N905NN is the new lightning bolt Heritage jet. I'm not sure if there will be a post 1968 scheme in the Heritage fleet plan.

They did in fact keep N921NN in legacy livery and just repainted the bottom. It just flew from GUS to BOS and was confirmed in silver bird legacy livery at BOS before departing to MIA.
