"Unspotted" Aircraft You've Flown On

Tue Apr 17, 2012 4:05 am

I just flew on N915XJ, a Pinnacle CRJ-900 operating for Delta Connection. Much to my surprise, there are no exterior photos (just 1 interior photo) of this ship in the database, even though it has been flying since 2007.

Have you flown on any commercial planes that are missing from the photo database?

I flew HC-CLB, an A320 of LAN Ecuador from Santiago to Guayaquil and Quito a few weeks ago.
There are no pictures of it in the database, but I have my own on queue now... maybe they get accepted!
If, for example, you came at four o'clock in the afternoon, then at three o'clock I shall begin to have existential angst because you nag as hell.

I flew on a USAirways EMB145 that was 3 days old when I flew on it. There was no photos of it in the database for about 11 months after it was delivered I believe.

N257JQ I think it was.

I can think of two off the top, N7265U, a UA 727-222 , and N746US, an Ex-ANA 727-281 that flew with US for a while, the only picture I was able to find of N746US showed her in storage, but there seem to be no pictures of her in operation with US. A third one that came to me was N171AW, my very first 737-200. There are no pictures of that plane in HP colors, only in the colors of her delivery customer, TACA I think and alot of pictures in the liveries of the various airlines that came after TACA, but none in HP colors. A fourth is N721RW, a 727-2M7, again, no pictures of her in NW paint, the airline i flew on, just Hughes Air West, Republic, and the paint of the cargo carrier she flew for after being retired from NW. The fifth and last is N926RM, A DHC-7. The only pictures I could find of that one were ones of her being scrapped, none of her in service wearing the CO meatball colors she was in when I flew on her.
Yes, I'd like to see airbus go under so Boeing can have their customers!
