United 737-900ER in 1950s Continental Airlines Livery

This picture taken at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston on July 1, while we were returning from our vacation.  Our plane was the 737 behind it, a couple of gates further down the concourse.

(Signs you’re in Texas: They have a Fox News store in the airport.)

Out on the tarmac

I took this picture for a long time employee of Continental Airlines, which recently finished its merger with United Airlines.  The combined company kept the United name but the Continental colors and logo.

This airplane (N75436 – Google that to find more pictures) was painted in the livery to celebrate Continental Airlines’ 75th in 2009.

I will have to stow away the Continental logo items I have with some Pan Am stuff I have in a drawer.  They might be worth something some day.

Voice your opinion... but be nice about it...
