VJ is from VistaJet at Allegheny. New York Air had a variety
of registrations. Some airplanes, initially, used ---NY registrations,
others retained their original Texas International registrations.
The MD80's ordered all had NY registrations which CO
kept for quite a while until re-registering to make consistent
with their fleet numbering system.
