I remember North Central's Mallard. Also, US Postal Service had an outline of a eagle's head on their 727s. And didn't Canadian had a huge goose on their aircrafts? This is all I can think of at the moment. Regards.

I know that someone has already mentioned JAL and the crane on the tail. I also know that they were asking only for on the tail.

But what about the birds on the fuselage and on the winglets of this MD-11, and all the other MD-11s in the JAL fleet (that are soon to be no more...)

I know Im stretching this some to put this here, but thought it might be worthwhile, but maybe Im wrong...
