I came across this photo today on the cape air website.

http://www.capeair.net/images/plane_ATR_over_MVY2.JPG

It is an ATR in Cape Air colors. The photo is dated Jan 25, 2010. As far as I know the ATR's in Guam are all in Continental Connection colors. Is this picture a photo shop or are they putting some of the ATR's in Cape Air colors

I'm not an expert, but in my opinion that looks like a photoshop job.

I agree. Something is just not quite right, but I can't put my finger on what.

As i said above, the have a CO Connection contract in Micronesia and I believe they are sporting the COCx livery now

The image is from Cape Air's web site - do they photo shop their own aircraft photos?

It's certainly a photoshop. Take a look at the EXIF data:

"Creation Software: Adobe Photoshop CS3 Macintosh"

CS4's been out for years now..hurry up and upgrade 9K!

Apparently so. Other airlines do, like Family Airlines for example.

That would also be applied if the photo was scanned from a print, which given the color tone, grain, and lack of sharpness, I would contend it was.

And CS4 has only been out for a year   ... CS3 came out just before that, and CS5 will probably be out before we know it.



I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

If it is, is one of the better ones I've seen.

That photo certainly looks genuine to me. Doing a search on jetphotos.net also shows several results of that reg in Cape Air colors.
Could it not be that they used PS just to resize the photo and other such tasks? I use PS to crop, resize, and color correct my pictures, yet each of them is genuine. And yes, PS does show up in my EXIF data.

Being a Cape resident, I don't ever remember the Cape Air ATRs flying around, especially in those colors, but then of course I don't remember PBA either :'(
Also, Cape Air is way too reputable of a company to photoshop their own imagines. Plus they have painted a few of their aircraft into some great special liveries

Maybe it was delivered like that?

Here are 2 pics of the ATRs in CO Connection colors.

They both have different registrations and I think 9K only has 2 ATRs. So it would appear they are not painted in Cape Air colors. Plus if you look at the Cape livery, it is oddly similar to CO Connection. Grey bottom and dark blue tail.

I love their Key West livery on one of their C404's.

I agree it looks like a scan which would explain the date being fairly recent, but I can tell you almost for sure that plane is in COA colors right now. I knew one of the KAP pilots out here a few years ago. I noticed he had a post card with an ATR in KAP livery on his refrigerator. He seemed to think it was only painted that way for a short time to do some photo ops and then was repainted in COA livery shortly before coming to Guam. It seems to me his picture was of the plane on the ground, but I'm not positive and it very well could have been the same shot.
