I don't like it. Looks like the A310s original colours from Interflug.

BTW: How professional is it to present a new c/s on a Herpa Wing?

Not too bad, I think.

Now, an A340-500 would still be cool...  Big thumbs up

Very good, of course much better than the old colors. I like that they replaced "Luftwaffe" (Air Force) with "Bundesrepublik Deutschland" (Federal Republik of Germany).

It would be funny if it were a boeing  Laugh out loud.

Seriously though, I thought Airbus would offer them a sweet deal on an A340 variant.

A German politican who orders new VIP-aircraft right now would commit political suicide.

Pretty, elegant, not overdone like some Arabian Royal ships, Luftwaffe still visible on the tail and on the lower front...nice!

and btw: A 310 is exactly the right aircraft, A 340 would look completely overdone, whereas A 310 is a real workhorse and capable of reasonable longhaul services, and space enough for larger delegations...I like that aircraft!



I know it's only VfB but I like it!

The idea to replace the "Luftwaffe" titles with "Bundesrepublik Deutschland" came from our President Johannes Rau. A good idea in my mind.
But I do not really like how they use the German flag since it does loose effect. I would have taken AFO as an example and print a large German flag on the fuselage or tail instead of that cheat-line.

Good Idea, but too much white imho.

A different color under the cheatline would have done the deal, and why not a German flag on the whole tail?

I like the flag being used as a cheatline for my old fatherland's VIP aircraft. Good looking aircraft, would be nicer to see a B767 instead of the A310 though; only my opinion fellas.

The A310 has been a constant pain on long haul trips for years... The frequent refueling stops keep wasting time and resources. A real long haul jet would be in order. Even though right now would not be the right time, of course.

Doesn't look bad but I would get rid of the two A310s which are only used to fly around our politicians' asses. They should better do it the 'British way' and charter long haul aircraft from a German airline whenever they need them. Tony Blair always uses BA aircraft, so our German chancellor could do something similar. I guess it must be cheaper to charter aircraft rather than operate two VIP planes. In these times not only the people should help to save money but also the politicians.

Udo
