Didn't see this posted anywhere or find any photos in the database, but check out this special paint scheme Korean Air is doing for the upcoming release of the PC real-time strategy game StarCraft II. As both an avid gamer and aviation fan, it doesn't get much better than this!

Now that is pretty damn cool. Can't wait for the game, myself.

Cheers,

I am by no means an avid computer game player, but I grew up playing StarCraft ever since it first came out. And having actually gotten a chance to play the beta version of StarCraft II, I'll just say that I simply cannot imagine the sequel possibly being better than it is -- to me, it is simply as perfect and totally engaging as any computer game I have ever played.

What a cool move by KE, kudos to them for tastefully creating a color scheme celebrating what I anticipate will be one of the most popular games of all time.

Cheers!
Anthony/Airport

How unsurprising that Blizzard would choose a Korean airliner for this.

Considering just how huge StarCraft is in Korea, could they really choose any other?

Yes, it's widely recognized that July 27 (the release date) is when the South Korean economy will collapse. I was amazed at how many tv channels were dedicated to showing people playing the game back when I was staying in Gwacheon.

Has Korean Air ever done any other special livery/billboard aircraft?

Does anyone have any inside info on the rotation these a/c will be flying? I'd love to catch one at JFK some time this summer.

So that was what was on that KE plane at ORD the other day. I didn't get a good look at it as it was taking off away from me, but did notice there was some kind of special paint on it.

Personally, I think it should have been on a 787. What with the production timelines and all...

Nah, you'd need to use "Duke Nukem Forever".
