A rare photo indeed! When these came in from the former MP SD40-2s were needed so badly that they painted a red GT noodle on them and sent them into service! Almost a year later they were all repainted. 5930 heads south on the AA to Alexis tower in 1999

Robert Jackson General Hey Howard! This could not have been taken in 1999. The "Yellow GTW" units were all repainted by 1993. Also, "Ditch Lights" have been mandatory since 1998. Could you please "Fix" the date? My guess would be year 1989! Nice picture! Thanx!!!! 12/15/2017 7:52:59 PM
