ANA To Bring Back "Mohican" Livery!

Finally one of the Japanese carriers has jumped on the retro livery bandwagon:

http://www.ana.co.jp/eng/aboutana/press/2009/090930.html

The skies of Japan will turn nostalgic on December 1 when ANA starts operating a 767 in its former “Mohican” livery on flights between Tokyo and the cities of Miyazaki and Kagoshima in Kyushu, the southernmost of Japan’s four main islands.

The “Mohican” design decorated ANA’s fleet from May 1969 until March 1989, when it was replaced by the current livery.

...

The “Mohican Jet” will fly until the end of 2013.


From the press release rendering it appears to be 767-381 JA602A:



Dunno about the rest of ya'll but I've always liked the Mohican colors. Especially on the Tristar:

Despite these economic times, it's really nice to see airlines with retro liveries. Nothing like a bit of reflection to see where you are going.
Now, my hope is that they would also apply this to a 77W. That would be primo.  cloudnine

That would be nice to see, but i'm with KLASM83, stick it on an intl 77W, that would be very cool!

I wonder how long it will be before ANA changes its livery; yes, I know the current one is very nice, but at this stage - after 27 years (first introduced on the 762), it's a bit tired. JAL has been through two livery changes in that time.

It occurred to me that if NH does change its livery within the next 3-4 years, it could arrange a formation flight of 763s in the old, current and new liveries. Now that would be terrific!

So ANA will finally do what you, long ago, would have liked them to - in reply 6 of this old thread.  Silly

See, my idea is still valid after seven years!

I was wondering if they might introduce a new livery with their 787s, but with one already rolled out (and looking very well, let me say!) in current c/s, that's probably unlikely!

Why is it called "Mohican"? I could see if it were called ""Mohawk" or "da Vinci".

I think the reason was that if you looked at the aircraft head on, there was a thin blue stripe above the cockpit which looked like a Mohican haircut.

Ahhh...Where I'm from we called that a Mohawk, but perhaps both Native American tribes had similar styles.

I remember seeing this old ANA livery, quite a number of times actually. I find it interesting that they will bring it back. Yet I prefer the livery they have now. Efficient and graphic, good colours.

I think ANA will wait for their first 787 flight to change their livery as they will be the new much awaited aircraft launching airline.



There was a better way to fly it was called Concorde

Mark me down as a fan of the current ANA colours as well, however this retro job will look amazing I'm sure.
