I saw this picture to the left in an earlier thread today (Shortest life of an airliner) and I was sure it was an old AR aircraft. Aren't this liveries very alike? Any other examples of this?

I can still get it wrong when taking a quick look on a LTU 757 and think of the Greenlandair 757 (today Air Greenland) in it's former livery. BTW my home country carrier. Love it!

So far I think Transaero-Air France takes the prize. I went to the Transaero website to check if it was a subsidiary to AF. I wonder how much alike it must get before the design is considered a copycat job.

They are very closely linked, I think they are in some sort of alliance, hence the variation.

Haha, that's hilarious!

Transaero is one of a very few MAJOR airlines in Russia. (Aeroflot, Transaero, Sibir). Nothing to do with AF. The livery isn't the same, sure it's similar, but it can't be a copycat since it's still a different design.

Actually when I asked about the similarity I found out that CKT leased a few aircraft to North American at one point and NAA liked the livery and "borrowed" it. Still it's always nice to wonder what the Caledonian livery would look like on a 767 and 737 eh  Wink

I jolly disagree. Although a little bit different the Transaero brand and livery ARE inspired and based on the Air France brand and can be said to be a 'copy cat'-livery. It doesn't say anything that they are major airline.

I'm sure CO own a lot of COPA.

North American Airlines and Caledonian Airways

True, the first aircraft North American operated was a 757 leased from Caledonian. Like Dutchbird with Condor, North American adopted part of Caledonian's scheme to presumably save on paint bills. Also like Dutchbird, the livery was then used fleetwide, including on aircraft types never operated by Caledonian.
