Northwest And Virgin Atlantic

Thu Jan 22, 2004 12:58 pm

I was just curious, does Northwests new paint scheme and Virgin Atlantics newer scheme use the same colors? In some photos they look the same and others they look different. I've only seen the new NWA colors, so any responses would be great!

Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing! It's a bonus if you can fly the plane again!!

WingnutMN,
yes your right, they are very similar!! Although there logos are different, so it's not as if NWA exactly copied Virgin!

Damn.....they tried to keep it a secret but I guess they couldn't fool everyone.

Virgin did not want everyone knowing they are buying NWA after the lawsuit is over. This way it saves on the cost of painting planes.







Whatever.................
