Philippine Airlines 70th Anniversary

In all of the hubbub of Air Force 1 departing HNL on 11.15.11, I forgot that a Philippine Airlines A330-301, RP-C3335 (msn 189), arrived as PAL100 from MNL, minutes before the President's plane departed. This A330 wears 70th anniversary markings over the wing section of the fuselage. PAL100/101 is normally served with an A340-300, but was substituted with this A330-301.

Philippine Airlines celebrated their 70th anniversary this past March, and is listed milestones on their website.
