    Favorite Special Liveries

    What are your favorite special livery aircraft which you have actually seen in person (not on internet)? Some of my favorites seen at JFK was the ANA Pokemon B744, Alitalia "Baci" and "Bulgari" B744s, Qantas "Wunala Dreaming" B744, SIA "Tropical", Western Pacific's "Simpsons", DAL "Olympic Spirit", America West's "Phoenix Suns" "Diamondbacks" and I also saw Continentals" "Peter Max" B777 at EWR. Which are you guys favorite special liveries? Notice that most of those I mentioned have been re-painted. I guess using aircraft as advertising is too expensive.

    Just a couple for me... US Airways: PSA, Eagles, Steelers; American's 757 retrojet, West Pac's Simpsons and Stardust, Continental's Alitalia and VASP "half n half" DC-10's and finally SWA- Maryland1 and these two:

    I always liked the split Singapore Ba livery on BOAD.

    I'm surprised you didnt mention that in your list, Shulman.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    I liked Concorde liverys in the following order
    :-
    1) BA's Blue tail (I think its called landlore)
    2) White tail Concorde (livery with G-BOAD has now)
    3) Singapoor Airline Concorde
    4) Air France Concorde livery

    Other liverys used on subsonic planes
    :-
    BOAC
    Pan Am and TWAs 1960's liverys.
    East African Airlines 1960s livery used on the VC10s.
    Virgin
    Aeroflot
    Ok jet
    American Airlines
    Air Italia
    Quantas
    South African airwarys
    Jamacia Airways
    Air Canada
    Lufthansa's 1989 livery looked very smart as well.

    I liked the old Capitol Bicentennial (aka Stars and Bars) livery on their DC-8. I can't seem to find a pic of it though. Maybe it's Capital? I also liked the Calder Colors Brannif DC-8. Three underrated regular liveries, IMO, was BWIA, from the 70's and 80's, the old Gulf Air "Eagle" from the same era and Seaboard World, again from the same era.

    Air France did one for some promotional stunt but that was never used in commercial flight and i never saw a Pepsi Concorde.

    I saw pics of it but that made Concorde look ugly as the wings could not be painted the same colour as the body, they had to be kept white so the plane looked half finished.

    If they had used a better paint scheme, better colours and design, it would have been different but you can see some ad man from pepsi throwing countless $s to Air France for a rubbish paint scheme to promote their drink.

    I think a 7up or Coca cola Pepsi would have looked cool with the right colour scheme.

    For me Concorde always looks good in white with livery from what ever airline is flying.

    Singapoor Concorde was very smart.

    My favorite by far:

    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.
