American Airlines Rolls Out "Heritage" Series Tributes
« on: July 06, 2016, 07:53:41 PM »
How cool is this? American has rolled out a series of tributes to its root airlines! I was in Dallas (KDFW) earlier this month and was able to catch the TWA and Reno tributes, and my wife caught the Peidmont tribute in KMKE. I was caught off-guard as I drove into KDFW on the service road, and a 737 in full TWA colors flew over-head... I was like "Did I just see...nooooo...YES!!" lol...

Nine total Heritage Airlines are represented including American Airlines Retro-Jet, TWA, Piedmont, Air Cal, Reno Air, America West, PSA, Allegheny, and USAirways.

#2 B737-800 N916NN in Reno Air colors approaches KDFW (Forgive the poor quality)
#3 B737-800 N916NN at the gate in KDFW in full Reno Air Colors (Again, sorry for the poor angle, best I could do...)
#4 A319 N744P in Piedmont colors at KMKE

Very cool!  I managed to see the TWA at LAX recently, but haven't seen any of the others yet.  But I did catch the "Astrojet" livery 757 a few years ago at John Wayne Airport (SNA).  It looked great...
