Air Canada Raptors 320: Black Or DK.GREEN?

Tue Sep 10, 2002 3:42 am

Was the Air Canada A320 Raptors main background color?

1) black
2) same dark green as regular AC tails
3) a green version of USAirways `blue'.

I recall when the current AC tails came out a lot of people thought it was black. Then we discovered it was `teal green'.

In most light the Raptors does look like either 1) or 3) above,
but the following photos make me wonder:
(Click on `large' and note especially the difference between
the main colour and the definite black around the raptor's eye and around the `R A P T O R S' wording on the tail.)
What do you think?

If you turn your monitor to highest brightness you can see it's actually black....with super dark green. Big grin
