Yummy...yummy a "Lorenzo Meatball" !

As for the Postal bird, you do mean a 727-100, don't ya? I don't recall the USPS flying the 732, then again I could be mistaken. If this is a USPS 721, then .......SOLD..!!!!

You know its odd that you mentinon that. Some weeks back I contacted Adams Jets and asked if this could be custom made and what the price would be. I had a friend that was retiring from the USPS who often worked these flights at IAH so I thought this would have made a great retirement gift. Suffice it to say they wanted anywhere from $100.00-$130.00 plus I would have to pay up front and to add salt to the wound I would have waited an untold number of months due to a supposed backlog, well you can guess my reaction.

Thank god for Gordo, Tom and SMAC.

Well, a red meatball is better than no meatball. Glad to see some CO metal. Doc, bust out the shine 'cause it's time to party!

Phil, I'll bust out the 'shine as long as you promise not to sodomize my dog...again. Damn lightweight. You need to attend more Bethune parties to get your alcohol tolerance up.

Woot, meatball! (Hopefully red).

USPS--maybe, it's about the biggest plane we get at CID.

Continental never flew 732s in black meatball colors ... they are all ex-PEOPLExpress / Frontier birds.
