Throughout the world, many airlines try to be creative with their paint schemes. Their tails are what stand out while taxiing around and even during flight. What are some of your favorites?

My favorite is a tie between the Chelsea Rose and the Emirates Flag design. They both show a lot of class and professionalism.

I also find Frontier's different tails very interesting. Delta's new tail looks great too.

I quite like the Thomas Cook livery, the tail is particularly cool. When looked at up close you can see it's very cleverly made
