Airbus A319 (N744P)


American's N744P, displaying Piedmont colors from the past, passes in front of the snowy Sierra Nevada as it heads skyward after lifting off from Reno Tahoe Intl's runway 34L.

Now if only the Allegheny, TWA, and Air Cal heritage schemes would drop by for a daytime visit while the snow is in the mountains, I'd have the entire group of six. (Fingers crossed ... grin)

5* Gary-love that Pacemaker bird!
Greg Byington
Another great shot, Gary!
Nice photo!
Dwight Hartje
Excellent shot, Gary! Seen in Daily Newsletter!
That would be awesome if you could see all the American retro aircraft!

Thanks for the compli, Dwight. Regarding the specials, I've already got the AA retro. As for the seven AA heritage schemes (TWA, Reno Air, PSA, Piedmont, AWE, Air Cal, and ALO), the only two I'm missing are the Air Cal and the TWA, and I'm sure I'll get my chance to click 'em soon. (Fingers crossed)
Dave S. >> Oh, man, you bet! "The Route of the Pacemakers" I've located an old B & W pic of a Piedmont F-27 ... "Pacemaker James River". I'll work on it and see if I can make it presentable for posting.
Floatonaboat and Greg B ... TYVM for the comments, guys. :-)

Flew this airline back in the 70's. the good old prop jobs. Military stand-by was $15.00.

NO PHX-ANC for me in this tight bird for almost 6hrs.!

Oh yeah. I remember Allegheny Airlines. We used to call it "Agony" Airlines. But we still flew on Allegheny.

Deb - I was born and raised in PGH. We used to say: "If you need to get to Chicago in the worst way - fly Allegheny!

I'm suspicious of the "P" at the end of the "N" number! I suspect that it's phony! I think the real AA number is smaller - below it. The practice has been to use the 'two-letter' abbreviation of the airline - tacked on at the end of the 'N number'. That's fine - until merger time. You'll see some AA aircraft with "AW" at the end - a carryover from when that aircraft was bought by AmericaWest - which then morphed into US Air - which then morphed into AA. NW to DL - CO to UA - etc.

The AA and AW theme planes do have different ending N numbers than normal.

N742PS - PSA
N744P - Peadmont
N745VJ - Allegany
N828AW - HP Old Colors
N152UW - US Airways (A321)

You are correct if is it a AA frame as they still have the ending NN

Art .. Hi. If you are ever unsure about any reg number you see on an aircraft, just enter it into the FAA aircraft reg site. You'll have your answer in less than a heartbeat.
Scot .. N828AW has been repainted. It no longer is dressed in old AWE clothes. Only N838AW is wearing America West paint now. I caught it yesterday at RNO. Also, N837AW, the former Cardinals schemebird, has been repainted too.
Deb and Art ... I used to hear that old saying about Allegheny too. But Allegheny survived. It took over Lake Central Airlines and then Mohawk. It then took over Pacific Southwest (PSA), Piedmont, and Empire and reorganized into US Air. Then, as US Air, the old Allegheny bought out America West and reorganized as US Airways. (That is why the Allegheny, America West, PSA, Piedmont, and US Airways [A321] schemes are all "heritage" schemes ... they are a part of the heritage of today's airline. The aircraft that displays the former American Airlines livery is a "retro" livery because it is a "retrospective" look back at the livery formerly used on the AA fleet; the same as N475UA is painted in "retro" UAL colors and N75436 is a "heritage" livery .... United and Continental merged and N75436 wears the old Continental colors . Now, the airlines that started out as Allegheny merged with American (it was American that was in $ trouble which is how Allegheny/US Air/US Airways was able to force the merger) and so today, the airline that was once Allegheny is now American. Whatever was being said about it back in the days of our youth, SOMEBODY must have been flying on it ... because it has outlasted seven other airlines. :-)

Another awesome shot well done
