To commemorate their 60th anniversary, Aloha Airlines painted N823AL into the Funbird colors of the 1970s. Red and yellow flowers can be seen on the bright orange tail, as well as on the classic cheat line. As a bonus, the belly and engines were also polished nicely. Flower Power is seen approaching runway 26R with the Koolau mountain range behind. What a classic Hawaii shot!

Amazing that this bird is still in the front-line of service. She looks so good all polished underneath.

Miss the old Funbirds! I wasted many a day in high school watching out the window and seeing them come in on final to HNL. Thanks for such a great pic of a classic bird!

Great! What a unique chance to see an old 737 in this high quality and good paint-condition. Reminds me of how I startedt "flying" in ATPL Simulator. That was even before the MS FS!

Indeed a beautiful shot! Not to mention a beautiful airplane (=
Funny thing is that I could have flown it, but we were put on Hawaiian instead. Such a shame; it's such a beautiful, yet rare aircraft.

My first flight in an airplane was on a Boeing 737. Looking at this picture reminds me so much of that flight. The plane is so small but yet powerful. What a beautiful aircraft!!!

I sometimes deceive myself that the golden era of aviation will be back one day. So sad it's gone forever. Bye bye, funbird!

Every time I see this photo, I'm sad that we can't see this wonderful aircraft anymore.
