US airways introducing retro colours

Recommended Posts

Guys,

 

Nice way to show their roots:

 

Tempe - US Airways is celebrating their merge with America West by painting a few aircraft in historic liveries. In the coming months, aircraft will sport the liveries of PSA, Piedmont, Allegheny and America West, the predecasors of US Airways.

At this moment an Airbus 319 has been painted in the old America West colours and an A320 in the orange-brown retro colours of PSA. The latter plane even sports the famous PSA smile underneath the nose !!!

 

Apart from having a special livery, the registration of the aircraft will also be adjusted :o

Normally, the registrations of US Airways are registered as NxxxUS, but now the PSA aircraft has been changed to N742PS and the one of America West has been altered into N838AW. All aircraft also wear a special logo on the fuselage to celebrate the forming of the new US Airways.

 

Apparently, US Airways have forgotten that also Mohawk and Lake Central were part of the heritage of US Airways, as these airlines will not be remembered :angry:
