Here you go for those that might want to try an Aussie operated 737. I was at Sydney Airport this afternoon at the spotter's mound, known as Shep's Mound, and caught some 737s

Looks like VXQ has had a radome replacement, it looked like this last year in April (taken at Adelaide)

Also took this at Adelaide in early December last year (another Virgin Australia jet)

Finally, a couple of US airline B737s taken in Honolulu in March last year

If anyone is near Gloucestershire there are some 737's being  "recycled" at Kemble (formerly home of the Red Arrows and now Cotswold Airport)

The vintage QANTAS scheme is really cool. Here are a few other schemes I've come across during my travels. Flown on a lot of 737s in the last few years.

Ruili and Kunming Airlines are two small subsidiaries that operate in Yunnan Province, which is out west and borders Myanmar, Vietnam etc. I flew Ruili Airlines in 2015.

Last, a couple more "exotics" I saw in Bangkok.

Both 739s if I'm not mistaken.

 

Plenty of cool 737 schemes out there!

 

Apologies that some of these are crappy cell phone shots, especially these last two.

I've taken quite a lot of photos of 737s over the years - I have an album of them on Flickr here - a few of my favourites:

I really love the original 737 in those pics - something really cool about the engines.

 

I just got back from Spring Festival vacation & saw a couple of nice 737s at Changsha airport on the way home.

The Shanghai airlines one is taken through the bus window, the China Eastern one from the terminal. That fairly boring white scheme is the current one, compared to the older one with the red stripe in one of my earlier posts.

 

Our own trip was entirely on Airbus narrowbodies...

My only 737 photo is the 1st (?) -300 which was at Farnborough in 1984.

Can anybody tell me the purpose of the Coroguard? It sounds like a corrosion protection coating but I thought that was what the paint was all about. Is it slightly grippy? A bit like a full walk area anti-slip coating?
