Not too bad looking, although I'd rather see this hybrid become their new livery:

It's true employees voted for it and this one won by about 60 votes. The runner up was the retro red which was my first choice. I liked them both so I'm happy this one was the winner.

I think it's really sharp. As was mentioned, it looks like the FedEx livery although I also notice a resemblance to Atlas Air as well...okay, maybe not.

I for one HATE it.

World would be better to stay with an all white fleet, rather than go to this!

"Hey! What's that mothballed MD-11 doing over there?"

"It's not mothballed...it belongs to World Airways."

I think THAT is what's wrong with an all-white fleet. I like the new livery and hope someone--anyone--clicks a picture when one of them comes through Bangor, Maine on a troop charter...as they do several times each week.

Who designed it? I think it looks good if you ask me. Looks like a TG livery.

Agreed, but it beats the current livery hands down.

the current all-white livery is a better alternative for sure!

A huge improvement!

An uninspired Jenny Jones makeover. I wish they would get rid of the squashed pumpkin in favour of the boomeranged meatball.

Will DL be doing the paint job for World or did DL just paint the retro job for World because it was an retired DL MD. I sort of like the all white but this is a very nice improvement.

My first choice

I think the other choice was the same as the current which is really just a white plane with the logo slapped on.

I dont see what the point is for an ACMI carrier to really spend much money designing logo's nor painting planes in anything more than the most basic paint job.

The plain white worked fine for World in my opinion and allowed for the incorporation of customer logo's as needed or total removal of any signage whatsoever easily if required.

Exactly what I was thinking, though I also agree that TG's current colourscheme looks a lot like the new colours from 5X.

Personally it looks OK I guess but I prefer WO's 70's colours with the polished belly and the meatball.

1. they have to be painted eventually anyways
2. they found that employee moral was boosted by the retro paint job.
3. I belive the design was done in house by salaried employees
4. We've had 13 consecutive profitable quarters and last year was our most profitable yet so we have plenty to cover the minimal cost.
5. We are trying to expand our customer base beyond military flying more memorable look may help generate some business and build our corporate identity.

I guess this style is the current trend...but does everybody have to jump on the bandwagon? Where are the non-conformers? :P
