I think they're horrible. Although rumor had it that some planes would have the black marks, and some would be blue... who knows. But this scheme (except for the red S and the sky... weird) make me think I've gone colorblind. Or that my monitor has gone to B&W on me.
I like the silver, but... it's just like their Detroit big boy competition, NordVest.
well. The MD
-80 is a nicer ride for me, anyway.
