"Grey One"...errr..."Silver One" to be painted.
Southwest's "Silver One" 25th anniversary logo jet is set to recieve the standard Canyon Blue paint job. They are repainting it, because they don't think that it's current paint job is not doing it justice....and they are very correct in that assumption! It used to look cool when it was actuallysilver, but now that it's grey...it looks ugly! I understand why they changed it, it was because it took a lot of money to maintain the metallic color, so they painted it with a shiney grey color. That color faded, so they decided to put it into the standard Canyon Blue color scheme. It will carry a special decal to remind us of their 25th anniversary.
