Hi

I think that the 777 in this picture = HL7530 an
B777-2B5(ER) (cn 27945/59)
But I'm not 100% sure.

This looks very much like the livery which appeared on New Zealand 747s. I don't remeber what it was promoting but I disliked it for the off-balance of it. This will be the same, drawing people's attention to the back of the plane. Whole-hung special liveries (i.e. Wunala Dreaming) look far better.

Just found this info on the site of Korean Air!!!

KOREAN AIR AIRCRAFT TAKE OFF WITH WORLD CUP FEVER


SEOUL, KOREA (Feb. 7, 2002) -- Korean Air has introduced aircraft with World Cup graphics in celebration of the 2002 World Cup to be held in Korea and Japan later this year.

Two different types of graphics are depicted on the aircraft and they were unveiled in a ceremony today at Korean Air's headquarters in Seoul. The World Cup emblem and two different graphics of a player doing an overhead kick have been added to one B747-400 and one B777 covering both sides of the aircraft. Graphics will be added to three more aircraft (one B747-400, one A330 and one B737) which will be added to operations by Feb. 22. World Cup insignia were also placed on twenty Korean Air limousine buses operating in Seoul. The first World Cup aircraft (B747-400 ) will take off as KE1237 departing at 14:20 today heading for Jeju. The B777-200 will be added to operations on Feb. 8 departing at 11:25 a.m. as KE035 heading for Atlanta, U.S.

Korean Air president Yi-Taek Shim, along with 250 other guests attended the unveiling ceremony to kick-off the events leading up to the world cup which will start in May of this year. As the national flag carrier, Korean Air aims to take World Cup fever to its destinations around the world as part of the growing excitement for the games. Total costs for affixing the decal are 600 million won and it takes approximately six days to complete one aircraft.

Korean Air, with a fleet of 120 aircraft, is one of the world's top 20 airlines and operates almost 400 passenger flights per day to 82 cities in 30 countries. Korean Air is a founding member of SkyTeam, the global airlines alliance - partnering AeroMexico, Air France, Alitalia, CSA Czech Airlines and Delta Air Lines - that provides customers with extensive worldwide destinations, flights and services. More on Korean Air's programs, routes, frequency and partners is available at

Does anybody know whether JAL and/or ANA will also have some airplanes wearing a World Cup paint scheme?
BTW: I´m already looking forward to seeing a Lufthansa 747-400 or A340-600 promoting the World Cup 2006 which will take place in Germany.  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

The same way I did, before he did !!

Go to the picture, right click, properties. Copy the URL address, like I copied below.

http://a1801.g.akamai.net/f/1801/2004/3d/www.fifa.com/reuters/02-02/2002-02-07kor_big.jpg

In front of it you must type (no space between the equal sign and the URL address)
Then it will work.

Sorry about the little red cross !!

A (bit more artful) copy of the WC design Air France had on 3 747s and some other aircraft 4 years ago. Even attached to the same place of the fuselage and in the same size!

You beat me to showing him 9V-SVE! Big grin
And yeah it is very much like the Air france design but i like KE's much more as it is more artistic and elegant, but the thing that lets down the special arty effect of the 747 design is that the ball is a photograph, a little tacky, shame, but the orange one is perfect!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I also like the the design on their 777!
But they must had painted in RED instead of ORANGE, The dutch soccer team will be @ home behind their TV's watching the World Cup Crying . And red fits within the outfit of South Korea!!
