Congratulations !!!

What a stunning livery: it looked good on the IL-18 too at that time...

Would have been nice on the 737's to expose more- and farther away airports; for instance, DH4's don't fly to Amsterdam  



don't throw away tomorrow !

Absolutely love it! Are there any more "Retro-props" out there or just jets?

She looks great!

Very stylish and attention grabbing scheme.

But what happened to MA's original plan for -LQD? MA made a big P.R. campaign to solicit design ideas form the public and from what I remember they even choose a winning colour scheme. Why did MA abandon that competition? Or is MA planning on using the winning design on another aircraft?

PEET7G, do you know is MA is going to finally paint on of its B737s in the OneWorld livery this year?

Thanks,

KrisYYZ

Very nice and sharp but... did anyone noticed how the dark blue fuselage line at the front (below the front cockpit window) flows and looks wobbly and poor. Is that an error or painted on purpose: that doesn't look nice at all.

Quoting krisyyz (Reply 8):
She looks great!

Hello Kris,

I don't think we can take anything granted, but according to the ones behind the MA facebook page, the Oneworld 737 will be next, and when financials allow then they will revisit the winner color scheme. According to my info, from others in MA, the winning "special scheme" will be applied to a DASH8 sooner or later, but it is very likely that not this year. (well definitely not until this summer end)

However the MA Oneworld scheme is due to be made pretty soon.

This looks far better than their current livery. However, it needs to be painted on a non-RJ aircraft to be better appreciated.

And here is the album on this weekend's Anneversary flight of 100 years of domestic flying in Hungary. It took place in Debrecen with the restored Malev Li-2... Link
