I said I would do another aircraft today or tomoz so here goes. Once again the "What colours do the ---- look best in" discussion was a total success so once again i thank everyone who took part. I've done the A320 and A330 both Airbus' so I thought why don't i do Boeing. And what better to start on than the king of them all the Boeing 747. What liveries in your opinion show this "beast" at its best.

In this discussion you can also suggest what airlines would look great on this fantastic aircraft and maybe some pics??? All varients allowed -100 -200 -300 -400 -400ER. In my opinion I think Virgin look stunning on their -400s.

I say British Airways' Nalanji Dreaming scheme painted to G-BNLN (Before they repainted it to the Union Flags scheme). Virgin Atlantic is also quite nice on the B744 and i like the South African colours too.

I think that the Boeing 747-400 looks great in the following Airline's colors:

1. NWA (new colors)
2. British Airways
3. Qantas
4. South African Airways
5. Air Canada.
6. KLM

Although not my current favorite, this big black nosed Air Canada livery was the "airplane" that got me interested in this crazy industry... I still like it today and sometimes think it had more creativity in it's design than current liveries..

I love UAL's scheme on their -400s. NWA's new scheme looks great too. Outside the U.S., I like British Airways current livery, or Virgin ATlantic.
