New Special Livery ⁉️ @ KDCAAA

Wha… omg its Av108. I know, I haven’t made a spotting topic in months, but I’m back, whether you like it or not :)

Today (25th March) I went down to el aeropuerto to see the new American Airlines special livery, Flagship Valor, which was operating its first revenue flight in the new paint from Dallas to DC. I met up with @Its_Zee and we got to shooting. The lighting started out amazing, but slowly decreased in quality. Anyways, enjoy the photos from your absolute favorite planespotter.


First up was a very sexy Max 8 from O’Hare, I believe. Clouds giving some amazing contrast that makes me want to


A rare sight at DCA, an AA/Republic E175, showing off its cool winglets


Following that is a shiny A319 from somewhere. Guess the airline to win a prize


Continuing the AA trend, we’ve got a very cool CRJ-something or other probably arriving from a small town that you’ve never heard of


Matt can confirm that I took this photo with my left hand, over the camera, whilst using my right hand to pour Cap’n Crunch into my mouth. Don’t judge, I’d come directly from soccer practice and was hungry


Finally, the big kahuna, the real deal, the special livery, Flagship Valor, fresh outa Tulsa/Dallas


Thats all for today, but I do have another topic that I’ll probably post after watching Jeddah, if it even happens. No, I did not realize that this topic only contained AA aircraft until I drafted this post. Oh well. Adios
