North American Airlines is a familiar sight at Washington Dulles Airport, but is a lot harder to pick out these days. Formerly 'flying' the Stars and Stripes on their tails, and with prominent titling along the fuselage, their 767's are now almost anonymous. It seems that they won a contract to fly on behalf of certain Government agencies a few months ago, which Vision Airlines used to fly. Flying in such a low-key scheme allows them to operate with less hindrance in certain parts of the world where they don't want to draw any unwanted attention.
