Don't worry ops check...you didn't!

As for the paint...looks a little better in the light...but the heart will be covered after one week of flying because of spray from the nose wheel. Haven't been able to watch the meeting...any changes to the interior, evolve or service?

So if the news article posted in the first post is true that the canyon blue fades fast and causes the cabin to heat up, I guess the solution was to paint the whole plane that color... unless this new color is different than the old color, but it looks pretty close to me. New paint formulation maybe?

They said it's a new paint formula that won't fade and will "reflect" away the heat....yeah...I hope so! Lol

Me too. Looked like the desert "southwest." Although with that rational, I could argue our jets should painted to look like swamps and mosquitos. :)

Aww... That airplane has a heart on its belly. That's nice.

Colors look better than the ones in the leaked pic though.

WN went from a classy livery to this mess that looks like a 3rd grader drew with crayons.

It looks like a giant clown shoe. The Wall Street Journal reports that the Carny and Clown Association are considering legal action.

It's all becoming clearer, and beginning to make sense. :nuts:

I flew that plane a few times. Talk about turning heads.

It's sad that the PC police finally caught up with it.
