BA Tails Being Copied.

Mon Apr 15, 2002 7:43 pm

Well, the Union Flag design must be liked by some people.

Orient Thai have used it on their 741 / 742 and now Air Holland have the same thing on their 752.

A US flag on the tail of NW ??

Actually I think these all fall into the Aeroflot category. When Delta debuted their new colors, many people called (and call) it Deltaflot, and already someone called the new Holland colors something similar. It's all about wavy, clothy, 3D tail designs and suffice to say it's getting unoriginal.

YES, Very unoriginal.

I forgot about Aeroflot and Delta, they are all copying each other !

Although they are the competition to us and I did like their world colours, to see a line of BA aircraft with the new tail is, quite simply, stunning.

They're not copying BA!

The image on the tail of Orient Thai is the flag of Thailand!
The image on the tail of Air holland is the Dutch flag!

Yes, but the style of it are all very similar!! I agree, very unoriginal. Also look like BMI engines on that Air Holland.

I think they started it off with the BA Union Jack in mind... but oh well who cares the BA Union Jacks's still the best and have some meaning to it.
