So long, US Airways

Last night US Airways operated their last ever fight. It departed San Francisco at 21.55 hours and headed for Philadelphia for 6am local time this morning.

It was given the flight number US1939 to mark the year the small airline began operations as All American Aviation in Philadelphia. It changed its name to the better known, US Airways in 1997.

It’s not all tears, though… In 2012 US Airways merged with American Airlines so the aircraft will still get to transport happy passengers, just with a shiny new lick of paint!
