Two New Planes In AC New Colors!

Tue Mar 01, 2005 3:00 am

Hello,

I spotted some photos of a AC B767-200 in NC and a AC A320 in new colors. I think the 762 looks very green!!

My God, if that first picture isn't a tube of toothpaste, I don't know what is. Big grin

A little off topic, but how many ex-Canadian aircraft still in AC's fleet?

Is it just me or does the A320 only have the new tail colours? The fuselage looks pretty white to me.

I think the aircraft captures the essence of a fresh, simplistic, Canadian identity. However, the livery could have been made a little bit warmer, with more fuselage colour.

The A320 only has a decal on the tail (there was a thread about this yesterday.) But the 762 looks great!
Next flight.... who knows.

the green-ness of the paint is evident under cloudy conditons and not very flattering. Whereas under sunshine the paint scheme is truly stunning.
I didn't care for it either until I saw it on a sunny day in person at YVR.

Saw a AC 763 in ANU on Saturday night. My first time seeing the new colours. Under the blue skies and sunshine it looked very blueish. Nice but missing some warmth in my opinion. It looks like a photo that has faded or something.

Cheers

The colour is meant to look frosted. If it lacks warmth then it might be working.

I like the new colours much better than the old. It's still eurowhite, but it's a definite improvement.

I didn't even know AC had a new scheme.
