Remarks: I spent about an hour watching planes that evening and can honestly say I didn't see any airliner that wasn't made by Embraer. And I only saw 2 airlines come in that weren't owned by Republic. The end is near.
Remarks: And just before dark arrives what I came to see. The E135 still operating in the colors of the carrier formerly known as Midwest. This is the first shot of the aircraft in these colors and first shot of "Midwest/Frontier/Republic/Brian Bedford's Monster airline" in SDF. The aircraft was once opperated by Expressjet and then stored in Kingman until Chautauqua picked it up recently to fly out of MKE onbehalf of Midwest.
Remarks: The mighty junglejet, and first shot in the DB of this one in the UAX colors. One may notice an uncomfortably large number of ERJs in SDF. Other than the intimidation factor, this is because Republic has a MX base in SDF and ERJ parts are easy to come by in Lulhvulh.
Remarks: Just another Southwest 737 coming in from MDW...but wait! Is that? Oh em gee! It is! WIFI! Yup, Southwest axed the Tinkerbell stickers and then fitted the plane with wifi. The aicraft should soon be getting its man card back.
Remarks: Pete the Pelican sits in mourning as the rest of his brethren pick through crude oil in the gulf. On the bright side, I got to sit next to a hottie going to a bachelorette party on the way to DEN. Good times.
