Aside the clumsy font type which is choosing for the 'Belgian Air Force'-titles the Belgian Air Force A330 is showing a nice livery design: a classic cheatline, a nicely designed tailfin layout with the Belgian Air Force logo. But look at the roof top painting which is in the Belgian national colours. Cool detail!
Disagree, I think the bird looks quite horrible. Cutting off an official, heraldic coat of arms like that is just not done, and the rooftop cheatline is a ridiculous innovation. Fancy paint schemes just don't work on military/government aircraft IMHO...

I dont see why the cheatline must be blue. Blue is not a Belgian colour. Black at least for the cheatline (and if it comes to me, also the tail) would have been better and would have made the livery more elegant imho.
Thanks DEVILFISH. To be honest I'm not sure if I like it or not? It's certainly different! I think maybe they would have been better off with the Belgian flag on the whole of the tail, that would certainly stand out!
