FLEET UPDATE: Aerolineas Argentinas 737-700, LV-GOO, painted in retro "double AA" 1975 color scheme

In celebration of the carrier's 70th anniversary and following the worldwide trend of recent decades of airlines painting select aircraft in their fleets in historic color schemes, Aerolineas Argentinas recently painted 737-700, LV-GOO (c/n 35962/2932), in the carrier's 1975 "double AA" two-tone blue color scheme.  This is the same scheme that the airline's F-28, 727-200, 747-200 and MD-80 fleets first appeared in.   
LV-GOO was painted in the Fabrica Argentina de Aviones (FADEA) hangar at the facility's airfield southwest of Cordoba city.
