Photos Of Orders Never Finished...

Fri Jul 30, 2004 3:26 pm

Does anyone have any photos (not enhanced) of aircraft that never made it or never made the scheme at the purchase time either from artists impressions for the purpose of marketing the aircraft to the buyer or aircraft never delivered

ie: the Continental Airbus posted a few months back

Im curious if anyone has an artist imperssion of things like Northwest A-340
Airbus fleet in USAir (not Usairways) colors *i know the airbus order was post name change but any marketing drawings done/available*

the best one i saw was a Valujet F-100 model from back in the MD-95 purchase days

You seem to have conflicting interests: You want images of planes that never existed in a certain scheme, and yet you also do not want "enhanced" pictures.  Nuts

In Airlife's 330/340, there are a few images of a CO and NW 340.

hey it was 3am when i wrote that and it was after a 14 hour work day ... but what i was getting at was not people on the internet throwing together digitally enhanced photos, but acutal artists impressions by the manufactuer or the carrier.

Ah, there we go.  Big grin

Most books (especially the 330/340) have a lot of renditions. You might be able to go back into Boeing and Airbus press release picture archives.

I posted the CO A340, I took it out of my book.

Aren't there some pictures floating around the database of aircraft which were never delivered (The Air Canada A340's perhaps - although the do now operate the type).

I've seen a photo of a Libyan Arab Airlines 747 at Renton. It was cancelled before delivery.

I have read that a Qantas 747-200B was painted in full Eastern Air Lines colors before EAL decided not to acquire it. I wonder if there are any photographs of that around.
