I was just looking through some pictures and really noticed that some liveries look VERY different in different light. One that really stood out was this NW A330 that I have aptly dubbed the "Pimp Mobile" for it's gold fuselage.

Any other liveries that you guys can think of that look drastically different in different lighting situations?

I've noticed the same with other silver liveries (Air Dolomiti, Virgin Atlantic). And wasn't there something with a special paint on Great Plains too?

Funny effect:

The golden/amber colours of the "ORENBURG AIRLINES" livery seem to just vanish when the sun shines on it on a certain angle. This leads the photographer of the first pic to believe the colours are 'faded' while they are actually just looking brand new (2nd pic)
