Possibly one of three answers...topcoat applied without primer or waterborne paints were used. USAirways used waterborne paints a while back and the paint peeled even with primer. Some quick turnaround paintjobs I have seen have been applied over bare aluminum. Thirdly...the wrong primer/expired primer or poorly prepared surface before primer...resulting in primer releasing with the topcoat revealing the bare aluminum. Aerospace paints have shelf lives when manufactured and is very expensive. Typically the paints are a two part mix...the base or color and the catalyst...sometimes other additives added, hardner, flex agent, flattening agent or teflon for non rub areas. Bottom line...many reasons for this...just pick one...g

Airfrance has lots of planes that do this, it's sort of a running joke on a.net.


Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

I thought the joke was they they dont keep their aircraft clean, not that the paint peels

Is this a wear and tear or warranty issue? Seems if paint peels to metal skin, your corrosion warranty goes out the window too!

If the manufacturer did it, it would be a warranty issue. If it's paint applied by the airline, the OEM is off the hook.

Not really...tell that to American Airlines. Skin panels are usually clad anyway (thin layer of pure aluminum over the alloy) for corrosion resistance, even if it's not a polished skin.
