Rat farts! You're right. For a nanosecond I thought that this was an upcoming release of Air Tran in new colors without Elton John's mug on there.

Elton John was applied to the old colors not the new. I bet we will see an AirTran 717 in regular old colors this month.

That would be nice to get the livery colors.

Oh no, my credibility on DAC is ruined. At least I know how to correctly spell the word. Douche.

Fully admit my typo! Calm down a bit though, hence why I had smiley faces!

Other than this plane being awesome (In my opinion of course!) it's grown to be quite a rare and desired model. A re-release would be a pretty big deal for a lot of collectors who are missing it or are looking to expand their AirTran fleet.

Lesson to everyone worldwide, humor doesn't translate well 1 for 1 to the written word.

On a lighter note, what is special about this model??? It is an AirTran 717 for chrissake!!! Collectors in the US (whom I assume are familiar w/ AirTran) haven't had much of a chance to get one! Certainly not me!

Peace on earth to everyone, good night. D-runk and

Shandaken was not drunk, I was I had 4 tasty IPA's while watching game 6 of the NBA Finals. And then... I went online to look at little jets.

Yes, I made a mini vacation for myself, and now my credibility is ruined! However, I still want an AirTran 717 AND I still wish for peace on earth.

Shandaken: let's hope you are right, I would definitely order one..

Note to all: Do not send me a PM with offers to sell me your 717 for $80. I did not and do not drink that much.

I should have 4 IPA's too, before logging onto DAC.

You will be happy soon, just not the colors posted in the model above. Something was added to the "nose"

Ok new releases are up and I had my fun on this thread. A few changes between the initial release and this one, and the extra cockpit windows have been added.
