Now that "all" of us have gotten used to the mint green (aka toothpaste) colourscheme of Air Canada's fleet, I have a question about the tail. With the pixelization (dots), how many maple leaf shadows are actually on the tail?

If you look carefully enough, there appears to be three... two just above the red maple leaf on the right side of the leaf, and a faint leaf shadow in the lower bottom left, that looks like a fade into the main pixel background. Is there any others?

I hope someone knows the answer  Smile. I do know that there is a hologram like quality to the paint scheme. Not only does the colour change with the light, but the angle you view reveals features you may miss at another angle.

Quoting Rikkus67 (Thread starter):
Is there any others?

Well don't forgot the other side of the tail, so there's at least 6..... (and it should be "Are there any others?" nit - pick - nit - pick... Silly )

Good gosh, my vocabulary! My bad, Tugger. So we have 3 holographic leafs per side, 6 in total...unless there ARE any more.

Anyone?

Aren't there many little maple leafs making up the larger holographic maple leafs in the back?  tongue

view this one in medium and large sizes. In the medium view, you can see the upper double leaf shadow. When enlarged, the two blend together... you also can't see the lower left hand shadowed leaf...

in this picture, only the main shadowed leaf can be seen...


Of note is the darker green dots on the top of the "new scheme" tail. Those dots look almost as dark as the "old scheme" dark green/almost black solid tail... I wonder how they compare?

My opinion.......Simply one to each side with the pixilization effect being used only to highlight the bright color of the leaf. I guess we would have to find out from the company that conceived it.

Oh yeah, and I like it too.
