The Continental Airlines 737-900 with a vintage paint job spent the night in Austin last night. This livery or paint design was featured on CO’s DC-3s back in the early 1960s. That was not too many years before I started riding my bicycle to the old Austin airport just to watch the planes take off and land. After all these years I still love airplanes. Call me a kid, or a geek, (perhaps both).
As a side note, you can see in the photo that the plane is parked at spot 12. I thought that was especially apropos since 2012 will be the last year of Continental. In fact, it’s just a matter of weeks before the public face of Continental Airlines will no longer exist as Continental is merged with United Airlines.
