Idea For AC Livery

Sun Mar 05, 2000 3:11 am

Ok, what do you guys think of this? Anyone else who follows basketball like myself knows about the Toronto Raptors and Vince Carter. He's probably the most amazing player to emerge since Jordon and will probably be as good if not better. Just check out his highlights as proof. Anyways, his nickname is "Air Canada". Maybe Air Canada should paint a plane with him leaping up for a jam (like he's streaching across the body of the plane, with his feet at the end and his hand with the ball at the nose). It'll definetley give the Raptors, Carter and AC more exposure. Cool, huh?

I am with you!!! Vince Carter is Awesome, they should definately put him on an airplane, and same with Mats Sundin of the Maple Leafs

I agree put Vince Carter on the plane. I hope Air Canada is monatering this. After all you do need work just a bit on the fuselage. Your tail looks excellent. Don't change it.

I think it's a great idea. AC's white fuselage needs beefing up. Too white! Tail is great!

Personally I like the current AC livery, even with the white fuselage. It's not overcrowded or too "busy" its just simple and elegant.

As far as special edition aircraft, sure, that idea would be OK. But I'd rather see AC come out with a "Heritage Series" paint scheme. Like showing off some of their and CP's old liveries, like they do with the TCA A319. You know, paint an A340 in their old red stripe scheme. And paint a 737 in the Pacific Western colours. And maybe a 767 in CPAir image. Or Wardair. It would be a lovely sight, and nostalgic for a lot of people.

How About This

Sun Mar 05, 2000 9:53 am

How about they leave the tail, but have a faint Canada flag going down the length of the plane and have the Winnipeg Jets Logo, the Nordiques, and other vanished prof sports teams logos, and other things unique to Canada along the side. And on the other side have a faint map of Canada along with the images of Famous Canadians. That would look real nice carrying our olympic athletes to Sydney. Maybe on an A340 or 763ER. And maybe on an A320 they should have a big waving Canada flag on both sides.

Those would be nice.

And Further....

i think with the plane and colors mentioned by AC_A340 should be flown by Jean Chretian and 2 flight attendants, Jane Stewart and Sheila Copps... then again... Jane will take your drink order and forget when she gets back to the galley. Sheila on the other hand, each passenger is only allowed a 10 second meal! (reference to 1 minute showers in Banff!)

UK Fly, just for the record, the Raptors livery has been stripped off and regular AC colors now adorn the A320.

Thanks for the responses! UK FLY: the Raptor's logo was too small and it didn't look all that great. I think the current livery is far too bland and boring. I'm not saying all planes should have a murel of Vince Carter, but maybe a special edition or something. What better way to see a plane take off than to see Vince jump up for a jam?

New Look Would Be Good.......

Mon Mar 06, 2000 10:12 am

I was talking with a friend and we both agreed that the current AC all white airplane sucks.

Anyone how has flown with AC has seen the two tone green with red stipe check in counters. What if the planes were painted like that? the two tone green fuselage with a curved red stripe separating the two. and the current maple leaf logo. I think that would look really good. and the planes would really stand out accross the world.
