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:
If you need someone to blame / throw a rock in the air / you'll hit someone guilty

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.
Don't you want to hang out and waste your life with us?

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!
