Kind of sad that aviation feels the need to educate their customers in these ways.

What's even more sad is that passengers don't even care to look out the window in the terminal anymore to even see their plane. Out of a crowd of 100 people 80 of them are stuck to their phone or laptop, 10 are sleeping, 5 are talking to somebody else, 4 zoned out and 1 looking out the window (me)

Very cool, IMHO  

Just one question: who is Kukula? And what country uses the registration prefix ZS- ?

Funny and interesting for those of us interested in aviation. If I saw that plane at the gate I'd probably look over all the markings just for fun because it would be interesting. Then the average person who doesn't know nor care probably doesn't know nor care about whatever the livery is, as long as they get on the right plane.

Yeah I know what you mean, that 1 looking out the window is always me aswell.

I think its just for a laugh too, I doubt it is some sort of "aviation educator".

Neat marketing gimmick though - have to say I like it.

I love it! Especially the markings for the "black box". But then again I do have a rather morbid, sardonic, twisted, sick sense of humor.
