Quoting justplanesmart (Reply 59):
And the other 747-451 UA had, N106UA, as of a picture just uploaded yesterday, seems to have gone to the scrapper in MZJ.
Sorry to hear that it was scrapped #106 was a lease return during CH11....I believe it went to Blue Airways for Mahan Air Iran.... EK
Neither of those aircraft were ever delivered to NW
both were purchased directly from Boeing by UA
in 1994 as NW
could not afford them. Boeing did such a through job of converting them to UA
standards that supposedly the only way you could tell was that the jump seats in the flight decks were a different color....well that and looking at the airworthiness certificate.

The misinformation needs to be corrected on a site like this.
Indeed and misinformation should be corrected however I am a little concerned that you may not completely understand what you are posting regarding that SEC filling.
That may actually be due to you being used to how CO
was set up pre merger....
was set up as a corporation with subsidiaries and when you went to the stock exchange you actually bought stock in CO
United Air Lines was set up as a subsidiary of UAL corporation and when you went to the stock exchange you actually bought stock in UAL corporation....not the airline.
In this case UAL (now known as United Continental Holdings) ended up issuing stock to acquire CO
and operated it up until 2013 as a subsidiary of UCH alongside of United Air Lines. In 2013 United Air Lines was merged into CO
(now known as United Airlines.) United Airlines is still a subsidiary of UCH...ie there is a still a parent company unlike the way that CO
was originally structured....when you go to the stock exchange you are buying stock in UCH not in the airline itself.
I am more than happy to talk to you about this further on IM
if you have any questions.
Something to add to the list of facts...
/CO have ordered a total of 714 737s directly from Boeing over the years and operated dozens more from the second hand market...somewhere around 850 of the worlds 737s were operated by or will be operated by the company.
