I ran into the same plane in Cancun airport in March. My wife snapped a photo of it and then I googled it when I got home and found that US air did about 6 NFL planes in some of their main cities. Charlotte was another one I remember.

Steelers-Themed US Airways Plane To Hit Skies

POSTED: 11:42 am EDT September 12, 2007

PITTSBURGH -- Fans of the five-time Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers will have their team logo and colors flying around the US Airways system.

A freshly painted Airbus A319 made its debut Wednesday at the US Airways maintenance facility at Pittsburgh International Airport.

The tail of the plane was painted black and gold and displayed a Steelers logo.

US Airways Chairman and CEO Doug Parker was on hand with representatives of the Steelers organization to formally dedicate the aircraft.

"I think it is the most beautiful plane," said Steelers fan Deb Powers. "Go Steelers."

"It's the greatest," said US Airways flight attendant Millicent Burnett. "What is not to like? Go Steelers."

The Airbus was painted in Roswell, N.M., and cost about $75,000.

Oh boy, tell me about it. When I was in Bangkok, sh*t, still makes me laugh 2 say this name cuz I think this is the sexiest city name ever I think, anyways back 2 what I was saying. When I was in Bangkok in some mall, I saw this plane model which was with Arizona Cardinals. I asked the guys if they had the Steelers 1, they didn't. Then I got the name of the company that made the plane, & contacted they didn't make the other teams cuz they're having an issue with NFL. So sad. Anyways, the other day I messaged the famous Allstar, & asked him, if he could make the Steelers plane, he said he could try. :applaudit:


Merchant,

I sent you a PM.

About what? :rolleyes2: Mind I asked? I'm just curious.

Really? Sorry, but I didn't get any message from anyone on this board? Did U send 1 2 SF account?

Reason that I asked what U guys been messaging each other was it's because it was posted on this Steelers plane thread.

From what I've heard, they painted the plane after the Steelers won SB 43.

US Airways has the NFL logos of teams that play in their hubs (Cardinals in PHX; Panthers in CLT; Eagles in PHL) and the Steelers in PIT (which was once a hub but has since been shrunk down to a shell of its former size after the U S Airways-America West merger a few years ago) painted on Airbus A319 aircraft. They also have aircraft painted in the former livery of Piedmont and PSA (former airlines that merged with the-then USAir), the original and second-generation America West, and Allegheny Airlines (the original name of the carrier that became USAir in 1979, although it first began in 1939 as All American Aviation Company and then All American Airways in 1949). They all fly various routes.

In addition, AirTran has three Boeing 717 aircraft painted with the logos of the Baltimore Ravens, the Atlanta Falcons and the Indianapolis Colts.

Sh*t, man. I know I want this plane so bad, but there is no way that I could spend that much pound on it. (sigh) I'd go broke.
