Continental Airline Liveries

Continental Airline Liveries

Following airline livery change has always been a big interest of mine. I can’t help but get a little excited every time I see an airline breaking out an old livery to celebrate one thing or another.

It looks that Continental Airlines will allow employees to vote which past livery they want to paint a new aircraft to celebrate their 75th anniversary. I would personally like to see either the golden jet or the black meatball liveries back on a new aircraft. Which would you like to see?

Continental Flight 1404

Continental Flight 1404

A Continental Boeing 737-500 slid off the runway at Denver International Airport this morning. No one was killed, but 38 of the 107 passengers and 5 crew were taken to the emergency room. Looking at the picture of the plane, it is lucky that the number is not higher.

Flight 1404 on its way to Houston had the gear and engine ripped off. The fuselage filled with smoke as the plane started to burn. It is currently believed to be a braking problem that caused this accident to occur.

A very shaky start to the holiday travel season. Hope everyone stays safe and we won’t have any more of these stories!
