Well the painting needs a little make up indeed, but don't you think it's a nice livery? I personally think is one of the best carried in a 747. TAAG 743's are ex Swissair - D2-TEB - and ex SIA - D2-TEA. At this moment TAAG is the only 747 operator to land at LIS.
About Angola, the air transportation there is like most of african countries, it's not that safe and if you look to TAAG safety record it's not that good. But on international flights they are acceptable.
I remember when they started, they received 2 ex BCAL old 707's that where normally hangar queens at TAP hangars!
I think both Boeing and Airbus should invest some time there because Angola is quite a rich country and they could renew all their fleet.
