To quote Johnny from Airplane! "...and looks like a big Tylenol!"

I like it, just wish it were more bold for a new aircraft type.

That is one excellent-looking airrcraft.

This livery honestly is the best I've seen on a 787 yet, it makes this awkward-looking craft (at least the front half) looking very good!

For me it is the worst livery on a 787 so far.

Daft considering she was a Nazi sympathiser; she's still though of by many older Norwegians as a quisling.

I like it. I just wish the engines were red as well.

Didn't even know that. Strange they are giving her the honor of being on the tail and on multiple aircraft even.

Regarding Sonja Henie's Nazi sympathy.

From wikipedia:

Quote:
Henie's connections with Adolf Hitler and other high-ranking Nazi officials made her the subject of controversy before, during, and after World War II. During her amateur skating career, she performed often in Germany and was a favorite of German audiences and of Hitler personally. As a wealthy celebrity, she moved in the same social circles as royalty and heads of state and made Hitler's acquaintance as a matter of course.

Controversy appeared first when Henie greeted Hitler with a Nazi salute during an exhibition in Berlin some time prior to the 1936 Winter Olympics; she was strongly denounced by the Norwegian press. She did not repeat the salute at the Olympics in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, but after the Games she accepted an invitation to lunch with Hitler at his resort home in nearby Berchtesgaden, where Hitler presented Henie with an autographed photo with a lengthy inscription. After beginning her film career, Henie kept up her Nazi connections, for example personally arranging with Joseph Goebbels for the release of her first film, One in a Million, in Germany.

During the occupation of Norway by Nazi Germany, German troops saw Hitler's autographed photo prominently displayed at the piano in the Henie family home in Land√łya, Asker.[5] As a result, none of Henie's properties in Norway were confiscated or damaged by the Germans. Henie became a naturalized citizen of the United States in 1941. Like many Hollywood stars, she supported the U.S. war effort through USO and similar activities, but she was careful to avoid supporting the Norwegian resistance movement, or making public statements against the Nazis. For this, she was condemned by many Norwegians and Norwegian-Americans. After the war, Henie was mindful that many of her countrymen considered her to be a quisling. However, she made a triumphant return to Norway with the Holiday on Ice tour in 1953 and 1955.

She was not the only one found of Hitler at that time. Time magazine made him a man of the year two years later.
History tend to forget the inconvenient things...

The "man of the year" award by Time Magazine was never necessarily a positive title, was it?
