AA New Colors - Version #1

Tue Apr 13, 2004 1:55 pm

This was the first version I drew, about 3 years ago.

Pros: Uses even less paint. Makes use of existing typeface. Preserves conservative corporate image.

Cons: Possibly not different enough from current scheme.

Hey Concorde977. This is great! However how does the above livery save on paint compared to the current design? I see more red on this one and white on this one!

Alitalia,

I guessed that there would be less paint because the 3 stripes along the fuselage are each 1/3 of the size that exist today. The real weight savings would be minimal.
