Thoughts On This Old Livery, Palair Macedonia

Tue Dec 17, 2002 9:21 am

I think Palair had one of the best liverys ever. I remember them way back in 1993 and I thought they were the best colors that I had ever seen. Too bad they don't exist today.  Sad :,(
What does everybody think about these colors?

Stunning! Very simple but very effective. I was lucky enough to see their F100s at DUS a couple of times. Such a change from boring white schemes.

I agree it stands out nicely, but I always thought their TU-154s looked better, despite not being all red.

I had downloaded the F100 for FS98 a long time ago. Loved that plane and livery! What happened to Palair Macedonia?

WAY too much red! I find it screams at me.

I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

Very nice scheme. Simple, but elegant. Very catchy. I loved the old TWA Wings of Pride, and it sort of gives off that vibe.

I personally liked their livery on the TU-154 much more. The Fokker had too much red, and never appealed to me. In any case i think the TU-154 would have looked nicer if the engines were also red.

Macedonians do have nice looking imaginative liveries. The tails with MAT Macedonian Airlines are absolutely stunning!

However as an improvement, MAT should have adopted the bold, block lettering as with their friends to the north, JAT.
