I really hope that the beautiful bird is considered for addition!
We really need this for reworked 752! Great livery, a lot of routes to fly with it :)
Okay I had to remove a vote for this.
I’ve been flying the IF livery 752 as a substitute for 567CA, but with National adding a new 752 to their fleet shortly (N963CA) this would be the perfect opportunity to add it to IF.
That’s what I’ve done in it between the December ‘20 release and late April of ‘21
Talk about routes!
963CA is an Ex-AA, 2001 vintage 752 with RR’s, winglets, and the flat panel upgrade which we have in IF.
A match made in heaven.
And the good thing is, it’s not a cargo setup. No need to wait for the 757F 👀
It’s such a neat livery, operating unique missions, to super cool places.
The National 757 100% fits the bill for the other liveries we’ve gotten on the 757-200
It would be a lovely edition! Got my vote!
It would be such a treat to have in IF.
Although it’s N-Reg’d, and owned by an American company, it has flown to every inhabited continent, possibly making it one of the most traveled 757s in the world
I would agree! Its a 757 for anywhere!
Just a little bump.
N963CA, National Airlines newest 757 entered service a few weeks ago, and it’s already hard at work with 22 flights and almost 30,000 miles flown.
One of the reasons I think the National 757 would be such a great fit in IF is how diverse its flying is, taking it to every corner of the globe would be such a treat.
I love this, but it reminds me of the incident at baghram airbase ❤️
Wow this has been left abandon
