Apparently Envoy has acquired a ex-BA E-170 and painted it in retro American Eagle livery. Photo is not mine nor do we know photographer. Gemini Jets please pick up the White Courtesy phone…..
Who else is looking forward to this one?

I sent them a request and received a reply back saying they will “consider my request”. Likely an automated response but at the very least they are aware and hopefully plans are being made to release it soon.

GJ could easily sell 1000 of these.

One of my favorite liveries that I used to fly on regularly! I like that AA brought a retro bird with this livery into the mix. For sure, this is one for GJ to do. Not like Herpa is going to surprise all of us or something with this.

Just happened to score the 1/200 CRJ-700 with this livery on eBay. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

Is it really 'retro' if that livery was still in regular service within the last 5 years or so?

I don't think this livery ever appeared on an E170 though....

Not a big fan of retro liveries... guess because I'm younger... but definitely a nice choice for people with american airports, stands out!

Envoy released a better pic and it seems like it might be N760MQ instead of N762DT that received the livery, so there’s either two of them, there was a miscommunication, or they rendered the wrong registration.

Still looks fantastic either way and am really hoping to see this in person. Think this is the first time in a while a new special livery was done on a US regional aircraft.

It's a really good livery and I'm really looking forward to having a model of it, and my prediction is that we will most likely see it from Gemini at the beginning of next year
