The special scheme that has disappeared from our sky for good , which one do you miss most ?


I have a few in mine but so far the one that I really hope to see again is the Qantas F1 Formula, it was my favourite scheme.

How about you guys?

This is the original paint scheme for the KC-10 and it was the predominant one when I first started flying on them. I miss it a lot, it's infinitely better than the flat grey crap we have now.

The QF scheme was pretty sweet. I wish I could have seen that in person. For me, I miss seeing the special schemes (more of special markings) of TWA. I always enjoyed seeing "Wings of Pride," N948TW and "The Spirit of Long Beach," N984TW.

Dont worry, QF paints that every year for the F1 races.

The American Airlines 'Retro Jet' on the 757 and 737 was pretty cool. The 757 has been changed back, I think the 737 has or is about to be changed back.

The British Airways 'World Tails' were very nice and too short lived.

And don't forget the BA/SQ Concorde, plus the other special ones like the Pepsi livery. And while we're at it, I miss the Concorde entirely.  Sad

All BA world tails!!!!

They were a great idea and made a "regular" airline something special.
