This morning around 1000 PST an MD11 flew over Oakland NNWbound at maybe FL350, presumably out of LAX bound for the Orient. The bottom of the fuselage was uniform turquoise color. I took a quick look at the VARIG MD11s in the picture collection and didn't find it there-- so whose was it?

Are you sure it was turquoise and not maybe grey, silver, or some other color? I mean if you saw it at cruising altitude, the plane had to be pretty high up. So unless you looked at it through powerful binoculars or a telescope-especially in the morning-where the light can play tricks on your eyes-where you probably couldn't get a good look at it-it may not have been that color at all.
