You gotta see this - it is not yet in the a.net database, but the new livery is, well, quite special....:

A bear. The animal is the symbol of the city of Berlin where Germanwings will set up its 3rd base soon.

It is actually quite nice and I like it better than the "Cologne/Bonn airport" livery.

Since I can not find this reg on the database should I assume this is the first of the ex USAirways 319 to join the Germanwing fleet ?

Does anyone know if this is the first of the ex-US 319's to join the Germanwings fleet ? Since D-AKNO is c/n 1147 ex N727UW has anyone seen c/n 1136 ex N726US which actually left the US fleet around 2 weeks before 727UW did ? Btw N728UW and N729US have also left the US fleet for conversion to Germanwings standards. And also thanks Unique for the info.

Is this a new livery for Germanwings? Or a special livery?

OK, it's a bear....I don't see it...but that's ok, I still like it.

By the way...what does the banner above eye and across the door say?
It looks it says "BerlinerBus"?

(or is what I think is an "eye" actually an "ear"?)

It needs some low rider shocks for the landing gear, so it can squat onto the nacelles. Also the joystick needs to be replaced with a piece of chain with the links welded together.


Inspiration, move me brightly!

That's supposed to be a bear? Honestly, from the color tone I thought it was supposed to be a fox. Nonetheless, it is definitely eyecatching, though I prefer bears on planes like this  Wink :

By the way I really like this one and can't wait to see it here at DRS.

When will they start at SXF?

26 Unique : c/n 1136 ex N726US is now D-AKNN. Haven't seen it so far...
27 Vfw614 : It is a special livery celebrating their new base at Berlin's low-cost airport Schönefeld. They also have a special livery that pays tribute to thei
28 OO-VEG : ZUPAH, I hope they are going to use it from CGN a well, sure want to see it there.

33 Jorge1812 : Any chance that the 4U A-319 which is on static display at SXF during the opening house next weekend will be D-AKNO. Georg.
34 Smcmac32msn : Look under the engines...... it looks like those new "under jet" neon kits... wonder if they'll get pulled over for it? What about some window tint?
35 Vfw614 : I wouldn't be surprised. It has not been delivered yet, AFAIK, and will probably debut at the open day. But dunno for sure. Well, I prefer "Pimp my b

38 Gilesdavies : It looks aweful! It looks like a group of delinquents have broken into the airport and spray canned the aircraft when the airline wasn't watching!
39 Post contains images MIAMIx707 : If I was a vandal I'd do that to every eurowhite plane out there Sounds just as goofy if not more.. than 'pimp my ride'
40 Post contains images Bully707 : That's one sleek looking airplane!!! Soooo much better than the "normal" 4U c/s..... It is just a shame that "my" airport never came up with something
