Air Canada supposidly has more photos in their press gallery, but I only found this:


Air Canada employee Harry Blakeman puts the finishing touches on a newly painted A320 aircraft entitled Symphony of Voices. The unique design marks Air Canada's 65th Anniversary and is comprised of tens of thousands of airline employee names. (CANADA NEWSWIRE PHOTO/Air Canada)
Someday, we'll look back at this, laugh nervously, and then change the subject.

I rather like this livery. Very dramatic and attractive. In my opinion,
Air Canada should adopt this as their official livery for their fleet. It's
eye-catching. Mind you, with costs, I doubt it would be feasable,
what with AC's debt load.

This sounds remarkably similar to the "Spirit of Candai>n" aircraft. That too was covered with the signatures of employees. Actually Canadi>n painted two aircraft; a DC-10 and B747.

Very nice, although, I think they should put it on the A343 or 744 which are considered flagships.

I was at work last night and saw it in the paint shop. So of course I had to go over and have a closer look. They were putting the final touches on it. It looks really good. Can't wait to see it in a couple of days. I think they should paint more of them like that. I guess we wouldn't be that lucky.

Cool paint job. Would have been great to see it on a 343 or 744.... Even a 333 would have been cool.

Johnnie; I re-formatted my hard drive and lost your address. Send me something.

Looks cool. Future livery of AC? Wishful thinking, I'm afraid.

Where are the 10,000+ signatures? Or are they yet to be added?

The signatures make up the maple leaf in the middle of the fuselage. I think it is upwards of 25,000 names. (although I have heard 40,000 names but I don't think AC even has 40,000 employees)

Totally and utterly KEWL livery here!! I wish they'd do the same thing on a widebody on either a 744, 763, A330 or A340!

It would be great to see that great livery on an A330 or A340 as it is very unlikely that we will ever see the A320 here in Europe...

I like it, hope to be seeing it in Calgary in the near future. I would assume they will try to fly it to as many Canadian cities as possible.

It would have looked even cooler/more nostalgic if they'd put the old AC logo on the tail, too!
buhh bye

I just saw it tonight! Took off on 23 roughly around 2130 hrs. It looked cool in the night sky. It's a little difficult to see the maple leaf in the middle of the fuselage because it looks more faded than the nose and tail sections.
