The livery is surprisingly decent, and should translate well to the Beech fleet.


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

Not sure what the point of a pink engine was. Would make more sense to paint it in the same color as the tail no?

Interesting, I do like the look sans the pink engines, it just doesn't look like it fits well. Do they have expansion plans or are they just going to focus on existing service?

+1 regarding the nacelles. Otherwise I like it. It is original though conservative. It's not eurowhite, it's not one of those new wavy designs and it's not one of these multi-color liveries that screams "Look at me."

Considering it's Gulfstream, the mispronunciation might actually be accurate.

The inside shot looks ok, a lot of white, I would have thought they might have gone for a darker color on the seats to try and fit the "Silver" name and look.

Without the hot pink... excuse me, "fuchsia"... engines, the livery would be entirely devoid of color and would look like a black & white photograph of an aircraft superimposed on a color background. That being said, I'm not sure fuchsia would have been the shade I'd have chosen for the one dash of color in an otherwise achromatic livery.

It still has the standard Mesaba interior. These interiors were just updated in 2009, so it should be good for a while.



Good goes around!

Interesting livery. I think the "fuschia" works well with the livery. I also like that the airline chose to put "Silver" at the rear of the fuselage, rather than the front. A nice touch.

However, the circles do not blend well with the black tail. Too much clash.. hard angles and circles don't mix.

How else would it look? Gray/silver/fuschia seats would look gnarly. And there's not much else to do with the Saab 340's interior, AFAIK.

Renaming Gulfstream is like putting lipstick on a pig, although it appears they put it on the engines instead.

I concur. I light green or blue would suffice. Fuchsia? I must resist the urge to make a gay joke, I MUST!!!

yup,,,,the motors blow. Interesting...they used to fly for UA also but was never an Express...file a chapt 11 and meanwhile UA buys CO which their fleet is painted in. Exit Chapt 11 and now a new paintjob and name and their third attempt at bigger aircraft that I can recall...Shorts then Emb120 and now Saab340.

They also inherited Paradise Island Airlines' DHC-7s for a short time in the late '90s.
