Still here

Back in December, I showed you one of the few remaining Continental-marked aircraft in the newly-merged United fleet, and wondered if it would be the last we'd see.

Here's the latest sighting, above, taken yesterday. Below, what I guess will be the last aircraft bearing the Continental name, also taken yesterday:

It's been a while since we've seen any mainline Delta aircraft with tail-mounted engines, but just this month MD-90s have reappeared at LAX, operating back and forth from Minneapolis - St. Paul:
