Ive noticed that TAP's L-1011-500s carried a slightly different livery from the rest of the fleet. On all other aircraft, the red and green stripes fell below the windowline, while on the L15s, the red stripe covered the windows and the green rested on top. Does anyone know what the reason for this was?

Hi FlyAA757. Infact you have a good sense of observation. I checked that out too and in my opinion as to be with airplane design. The Tristar as the wing root higher than the Airbus so if they putted the stripes bellow the windows it would go between the wing root, so quite a difficult sceme I think. In the Airbus that problem doesn't happen because the plane as the wing root lower and the stripes go without problems.
