I always liked the Aviateca amd SAHSA liveries. What is happening in Cental America is the same as in the western USA. The colorful airlines of the west were eaten up by the mega carriers...PSA, AirCal, Western, Hughes Airwest and a host of smaller carriers. I am happy to see COPA remaining independent. Its livery is a take off on Continental, its mentor company.

I always liked LR's 1980s colours which they used on the BAC One-Elevens, 727s and even on their DC-8F. They're much more pleasant to the eyes than TA's standard Eurowhite. Plus, those old 80's colours would have looked excellent on the 757 (had they taken delivery of them) or a widebody.
I don't know what the hell they were thinking when they replaced those colours with the horrible Eurowhite scheme that was introduced with their first batch of A320s in 1989. Only the tail made up a bit for it.

Quoting MGA (Reply 5): Check out my Album... all about Nicaragua... the evolution...
Nice liveries there, thanks for sharing.
Speaking of color... Today I was talking with a coworker and somehow airplanes came up in the conversation. "You know something?" he said, "I still remember the very first jets Aviateca had... Ever heard of 'las papayas voladoras'?"
