Thanks a lot for the link, Alpha!

Don't know what I have to think of the DHL, it looks so...dunno... Will have to see it in real first before I really can judge about it...

Regards,
Frederic

A new attraction in Brussels; find those colours quite original in Belgium (we've a lot of white and blue, but no yellow  Smile/happy/getting dizzy)
Looking forward to see it in real life, but that's something for after the exams...  Sad

Sorry, but I think it is minging.....................It looks dirty!

How much were the marketing and design agency paid for that? I have seen better designs by people on the aviation hobby forum - full respect intended!!

Very Poor IMHO.

Here is a question for people out there. Will the 727's ever see these colors or the DC-8's, or even the Convair's??? It would be neat to see but I know the 727 was on its way out in Europe, not sure though if the same can be said for in the U.S. ????? I looks like a cross between Hughes Airwest and Surinam Airways when they flew DC-8's back in the day.

It was parked next to the new 737-800 from Sobelair in the hangar of Sabena Technics yesterday evening. It looks really nice and refreshing. It sure does bring some color on the tarmac.  Big grin

Looks hideous to me - it belongs on top of a hot-dog sausage with that mustard yellow and ketchup red together. Very amateurish design, and trying to fit the entire 'DHL' logo on the tail makes it so small it is basically pointless having it there - it is lost in empty space. They'd be better coming up with a different visual element for the tail - although at least they got rid of the red area below the tail logo.

Perhaps DHL should get some really *good* designers, and start from scratch. This is a tiny step up from a very bland, ugly design to one that is simply "fairly" bland and ugly.

I'd like the new DHL livery for Europe if it weren't for the fact that the all-yellow livery looks really tacky.  Nuts I hope somebody comes up with a better DHL European livery that still has the yellow but done in a more tasteful manner.
