THis is one of the few new livery changes in the past few years that I actually like...looks great!

Brown is such a hideous colour though...but yeah, it looks great. The white is really nice and the new logo too. I only hope they don't start looking like Air France ships.

I liked it on the 767, but not too sure about this one. Makes it look very tail heavy, or have a big arse, as L-188 put it!

I agree that the back of the aircraft looks heavy or "big". Maybe it is the way the photograph was taken? Overall I like it, but I wonder if there is too much white up front? Will all of the aircraft be repainted?

I've seen this bird 3 times in New Orleans over the past couple of weeks...not sure if I like it too much..it is usually parked next to a 757 in the old colors, and from a distance, it doesn't even look like a 75....more like a 73.

Not that I am partial or anything, OK I am, I love the look.

Absolutely fabulous . . . UPS old colours were great, and this one is too!

Agree with those who felt this is one of those new liveries that represent an improvement over the ones they replaced.

I am anxiously awaiting the first images of the MD-11F and B742F in new colours!

Yep, it was at MSY twice last week that I know of. Tuesday and Friday, I believe. I got a number of pictures of it on Tuesday. I like the new paint job, a vast improvement over the package livery of the past.

I DON'T like the new logo
I HATE the new paint scheme because of all of the white in the front. I think U.P.S. needs to take that brown on the top of the aircraft and extend it to the whole top of the aircraft. But I really hate the new logo.

I agree with DC-9, the logo looks bad. And UPS needs to do something with those engines. Put the logo on them or the URL to the website. Hey! Even rent them as makeshift billboards...

The MD-11's will be painted in the US after the cargo conversions are complete in Singapore, the first one will be painted later this year. There are no plans to paint the 747's at this time.

I like their new logo and with the exception of all that white in the front, I think it looks pretty nice.

I think it's a really nice design. The new logo is really smart, too.


Can't please everyone though.
