Boeing 737-900 (N75435)

Soumis

I've got many, many people to say Thanks to for my catching this wonderful special livery here at Reno yesterday. I cannot name every single person, but I do wish to publicly acknowledge the following wonderful folks / agencies: Ryan J., Michael H., "M.S.," and Daniel B. at FlightAware; "Calamity Jane" in California; and Kim, Carrie, and the M&PA branch at RTAA. Thanks to all of you, I finally caught (after several YEARS of twice-a-day tracking) the UAL "Continental Airlines" retro special livery when it made its first-ever visit to Reno Tahoe International yesterday during the late morning - noon hour. This one was the Top Priority special paint on my "MUST Catch" list, and after getting over 320 shots of it landing, on the ramp from every conceivable angle, and then taking off, I can scratch it off my list. Thank You, All! (Both Thumbs Up and Hi Fives, too)

Great shot! I saw this cool plane about a month ago at Washington Dulles.

Hi, Isaac. This was the reason I was gone and could not e/m you yesterday. I had received numerous phone calls and emails advising that it was scheduled to make the noon SFO-RNO-SFO run, so I got to the airport at 9:00 AM and set up next to 16L-34R. (Even more fortunate for me, 16R-34L was closed all day for maintenance so I knew it would land a few feet away from me.) After I snapped it arriving, I got on the ramp for close-ups from every possible angle. Then, when it departed, 16R was still closed so I positioned right on it adjacent to 16L. This retro scheme is a super neat flashback for old timers like myself because this Continental livery goes waaay back. (lol) OK, I'll be emailing you a bit later so keep one eye on your mailbox. (Wave)

Gary... Waiting and patience pay off in the end with rich dividends!!! :-)

And just to comment... as I see that green wing tip light is illuminated... and of course, that's the starboard wing... it has a green marker light on it. Red on the port side... green on the other side. Harkens back to ships and marine vessels... which any mariner would be well familiar with!

Cliff ... Howyabeen? (Sorry it took a couple days to acknowledge and reply; I've been hosting some visiting spotters.) I lucked out that this one dropped by when it did; next week I'm doing an aviation event so I wouldn't have been able to catch it. I'll send another shot of this one as soon as I find the card it's on. lol

Gary... I'm "alive 'n kickin"!!! Always with my eye in the sky and the sound of an aircraft passing overhead sends me rushing out the door to catch a glimpse of it!!!

Your patience and diligence paid off with this one!!!
