Unusual Jet Near DAY

Thu May 06, 2004 12:20 am

Hey guys/gals,

I was driving on I-70 this morning and around 10 am I saw a blue jet either departing or landing. It almost looked like the new United colors 737, but I can't seem to locate any UAL flights around that time.

Is there anything else with a blue underbody? I can't imagine Korean or KLM in Dayton. I'm not even sure what sort of plane it was, but I'd guess 737 since I didn't have a great look.

If anybody can offer any ideas that would be great!

There was a Sunworld 727 in at 12am, maybe it was departing this morning?

But that doesn't explain the blue underbody. Sorry.

Sounds like a US gov't plane - maybe a 757? They have a few, don't they, with baby blue colours? So now we know one of Cheney's "undisclosed locations" is Dayton. Poor sod.

Spirit's old colors had a blue bottom, as do USA 3000, America West and USAF.
It could have been an executive airliner type. I saw an executive 757 with a blue bottom at DTW this past Sunday.

I looked through the database and I think it was a government 737BBJ so a C-40 painted in the Air Force One colors. It could well have been on approch to Wright Patterson Air Froce Base and not DAY.

President Bush was in Ohio making a speech yesterday afternoon. That could explain one of the US Gov't planes (B737 or B757).
