Continental Airlines Boeing 737-3T0  N12349    (c/n  23587)


                                      Having gained experiencve with the ex-People Express Frontier Airlines 737s, Continental went ahead
                                      and ordered 65 new series 300s in 1987.  This is where the 737 started to lose its "Fat Albert" shape.
                                      The extra length, coupled with the CFM56-3B-2 turbofans in oval-section nacelles set forward of the
                                      wing and larger dorsal fin, gave it a totally different appearance.  The airline still operates some 50 of
                                      this model.  The above shot by Reid Antonacchio was taken at Miami International in November of
                                      2005.  Note navigation beacon under the center-section.
