What is your favorite theme plane? For me it is the Singapore Airlines B747 Rainbow c/s.

Air Canada Raptors A320. Excellent.

My two favorite special schemes flying today are American's 1959 "Astrojet" 757 and Air Canada's 1937 "Trans-Canada" A319. I think more airlines should honor their history this way.

Honorable mention goes to TWA's old "Wings of Pride" MD-83. This a/c was acquired in part with employee contributions similar to DL's first 767. The white stripes and lettering on a red background was a real attention-getter. Unfortunately this a/c was repainted in the new Globe scheme and has only small emblems identifying it as "Wings of Pride".

I like the UPS Olympic scheme best.

Although it's the same on the 747, 757, and 767, I'm partial to the 757 since I've worked on it a few times on its trips to GSO. It's kept absolutely spotless. You can run your finger down the side with a white glove and end up cleaning the glove. All other airlines with all-white planes should take lessons.

(I've actually seen "wash me" fingered into the dirt on the sides of other airlines' planes before).

I would have to say my favorite is Shamu from Southwest.
On a lighter note I happened to be on board Lufthansa Cargo's Time Definite aircraft the first time it came to JFK. After landing the tower asked us if we got the German Measles on the way over.

If you pass the colors of the Rainbow, we are gonna miss you.
