    Mmmmmmmm, shiny things....if you look real close at the reflection on the undernose, you can make out a row of parked cars. I'm in that row. Selfie! This MD-80 is Ship 426 which corresponds with tail number N426AA, delivered in November 1986 to American.

  2. Soon to be a Memory?

    One of the things I'll miss about this livery that the new American livery can't do is how cool it is to me to see all that gets reflected on that wonderful polished metal fuselage. Sometimes it's runway markings. In this shot you can see State Highway 114/Carpenter Freeway that forms the northeast border of DFW Airport reflected on the belly. This 737-800 is N959AN, delivered to American in March 2001 and ...

  3. American's new 777-300ER

    The last time American flew an aircraft the length of the Boeing 777-300ER was in the 1970s when American operated the 747-100. Today's 777-300ER is actually about 12 feet longer than those 747s flown by American forty years ago.

  4. Bird of Prey

    I love the look of the Boeing 757 on final approach- the sleek fuselage and wings with the stalky mains give it an almost bird of prey look from this angle.

  5. Mad Dog Short Final

    Here's another ex-TWA MD-80 still flying for American on short final for 17C. Delivered to TWA in September 1998, she still has her TeeDub tail number N9624T but as I've posted before, ex-TWA Mad Dogs at AA have alphanumeric fleet numbers- in this case, 4XK, as opposed to a numeric fleet number that corresponds with the tail number.
