Hi fellow A.netters.

Back in May we had the tournaments to determine our favourtie short haul, medium haul and long haul tournament. Now we put things back and we 'll have the one to determine the best livery around. Was difficult choosing the airline. Tried to chose from the 5 continents and the more major airlines plus a charter.Anyways hope you like my selection otherwise we could hold a parallel tounrament and have both winners play the big final however you want. Here is the draw for the first round. Voting will take place till FridaySeptember 30 th 7 pm CET
SO WHAT'S YOUR FAVOURTIE LIVERY

By the way, it is amazing how so many of us agree on these choices. It is incredible that a subject as subjective as liveries is something that we agree on, yet their are incredibly fierce fights about airplane manufacturers and airlines.



If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!
