United Air Lines
Boeing 737-222 N9065U (c/n 19946)
taking delivery of what would become a large fleet of 737s in 1968. The
page are by Bob Garrard, and both were captured at O'Hare
International, Chicago in the
1977. The above image shows the original "737 Friend Ship"
markings, whilst the lower
shot illustrates the new livery
adopted about the same time, and which held then for over a decade
.and a half. The choice of
the term "Friend Ship" is rather odd, since I, for one, always confused
with the Fairchild F-27 of roughly
the same era. The first time I was told I would be flying from
ORD to RDU in a
"Friend Ship', I became quite
apprehensive until I saw the actual equipment!
