I suspect they had some work done on at AAR, a major overhaul and modification shop at IND. Wondering if they did some mods and repaint. Track it while we can- I'm sure the reg. will be blocked soon.

I thought at the time perhaps just as a visitor.. guess not.. now GRR is home- hopefully, and not Orlando based for the Magic. A new bird for their huge new hangar under construction.

          I could be wrong, looking at the registration address it s the same address for Magic Carpet Aviation @ MCO where N253DV used to call home.

                                Anyone know if the airport is planning a water cannon salute for the first inaugural Southwest Airlines flight this Sunday morning?

                                N260DV had just been blocked. Not sure if it's flying again since going to IND. Any sightings in GRR? New colors?

                                      ----------------

                                      2nd arrival:
                                      SWA574 arriving GRR @ 12:45 pm from MCO 737-300

                                      2nd departure:
                                      SWA574 departing GRR @ 1:10 pm to BWI 737-300

                                      Wondering if they'll bring in one of their special scheme aircraft for the first flight..... and the 25 minute turnarounds should be interesting.....

                                          SWA574 departing GRR @ 1:10 pm to BWI 737-300

                                          Wondering if they'll bring in one of their special scheme aircraft for the first flight..... and the 25 minute turnarounds should be interesting.....

                                                Ok folks- here are the first two SWA arrivals and departures on Sun 11-Aug:

                                                1st arrival:
                                                SWA389 arriving GRR @ 11:30 am from BWI 737-700

                                                1st departure:
                                                SWA389 departing GRR @ 11:55 am to STL 737-700

                                                ----------------

                                                2nd arrival:
                                                SWA574 arriving GRR @ 12:45 pm from MCO 737-300

                                                2nd departure:
                                                SWA574 departing GRR @ 1:10 pm to BWI 737-300

                                                Wondering if they'll bring in one of their special scheme aircraft for the first flight..... and the 25 minute turnarounds should be interesting.....

                                                    Oh yeah, I got a ton. I was out on the main ramp next to Victor and the sun came out right as southwest approached the firetrucks. Pictures are beautiful...very few people over there with me too! I was shocked, best seat in the house. I'll upload some photos tonight.

                                                    The aircraft was N754SW, just a typical blue 737-700 with winglets. It came in about 30 minutes late. About a 30 minute turn...roughly.

                                                    The next inbound is from MCO and it's running 90 minutes late.

                                                    Unfortunately the water canon salute didn't go as planned. Only 1 truck worked. Interesting because the test worked just fine 20 minutes earlier.

                                                    Wondering if they'll bring in one of their special scheme aircraft for the first flight..... and the 25 minute turnarounds should be interesting.....

                                                      Ok folks- here are the first two SWA arrivals and departures on Sun 11-Aug:

                                                      1st arrival:
                                                      SWA389 arriving GRR @ 11:30 am from BWI 737-700

                                                      SWA389 departing GRR @ 11:55 am to STL 737-700

                                                      ----------------

                                                      2nd arrival:
                                                      SWA574 arriving GRR @ 12:45 pm from MCO 737-300

                                                      Wondering if they'll bring in one of their special scheme aircraft for the first flight..... and the 25 minute turnarounds should be interesting.....

                                                        Oh yeah, I got a ton. I was out on the main ramp next to Victor and the sun came out right as southwest approached the firetrucks. Pictures are beautiful...very few people over there with me too! I was shocked, best seat in the house. I'll upload some photos tonight.

                                                        The aircraft was N754SW, just a typical blue 737-700 with winglets. It came in about 30 minutes late. About a 30 minute turn...roughly.

                                                        The next inbound is from MCO and it's running 90 minutes late.

                                                        Unfortunately the water canon salute didn't go as planned. Only 1 truck worked. Interesting because the test worked just fine 20 minutes earlier.

                                                        Ok folks- here are the first two SWA arrivals and departures on Sun 11-Aug:

                                                        1st arrival:
                                                        SWA389 arriving GRR @ 11:30 am from BWI 737-700

                                                        1st departure:
                                                        SWA389 departing GRR @ 11:55 am to STL 737-700

                                                        ----------------

                                                        2nd arrival:
                                                        SWA574 arriving GRR @ 12:45 pm from MCO 737-300

                                                        2nd departure:
                                                        SWA574 departing GRR @ 1:10 pm to BWI 737-300

                                                        Wondering if they'll bring in one of their special scheme aircraft for the first flight..... and the 25 minute turnarounds should be interesting.....
