Makes you wonder where they landed it or towed it from...

I don't think that is a "Southwest" plane. The engines on it are pretty old and most likely not operational and they haven't had those engines in a long time, way before they switched to the blue color scheme.

Nevermind, I retract that statement. It is a Southwest plane, lol.

They probably bought it from the bone yard, engines are probably way old, its last landing was probably its last!
