I decided to head over to the airport yesterday. It was pretty cloudy and I was hoping that I would get a little bit of weather with my planes. It was pretty windy and that made things kind of interesting.
This particular plane is wearing the colors of Allegheny Airlines. Allegheny began in 1939 as All American Aviation company and delivered mail. It was founded by the du Pont family. In 1949, it became All American Airways as it started carry passengers as well. In 1953, it became Allegheny.
After deregulation, it became USAir as it wanted to shed it's regional airline image. It would later become US Airways and in 2015 merge with American Airlines.
I kind of wish that Delta would do heritage colors. There are quite a few airlines that fall under their umbrella. I also wish that airlines would bring back black noses.
