United Using B744 Ex-ATLAS?

Wed Apr 18, 2012 5:28 pm

Yesterday saw a UAL B744 at ORD with UNITED new font (titles) and no logo, the fuselage paint looked as if it was an ex-ATLAS B744. Sorry but could not take the registration, it was parked at ORD Int'l terminal. Anyone knows the story behid this bird???? It was a passenger version, not cargo. Interesting!
