Default Saw 2 more 757s in Former USAir Colors in BFM

So I guess that brings the count up to 3 (plus the one at Hangar 1) or 4 if there was another hiding in the hangar somewhere.

Anyone know how long the conversion takes??

Thanks,

There are four that I know of: 901, 903, 906 and 915FD

915FD was the one sitting over at hangar 11.

I was at BFM yesterday and there were a couple of USAir's that the mechanics said were going to us.

MAE is starting conversions May 1, and we're building a hangar down there that will hold 4 at a time.
