United Airlines Airbus A320-200 “Friend Ship”

@ San Francisco International Airport, San Francisco, CA

April 2014

While on a United flight taxiing to the terminal, I spotted this A320 “Retro Jet” sporting the classic livery introduced in 2011 to commemorate the 85th anniversary of United Airlines.  United Airlines held a contest for employees to vote for their favorite previous livery.  The winning scheme would then be painted onto a “retro jet” to commemorate the anniversary.  United used this livery from approximately 1970 to 1977.  Sony RX-100 image, processing with iPhoto.
