Call me an old stick-in-the-mud (or an incorrigible disco baby), but I think there just was no showing up the old TG
livery. It fit any make, although it worked especially well on a fat-a## MD
New is not necessarily better; Iberia's livery is as old as the hills, and it looks wonderful. And Continental's old "meatball" scheme was AOK. A lot of the older Asian liveries are just fab - how about Malaysia's flying jellyfish? Or Biman?
The new Thai livery just might make a 737 look good - now there's a feat. On the longer airbii, though, it does look a bit like a kotex in drag.
Speaking of which... Braybuddy, I'm going to have to take respectful issue with you on the spoof livery. Yes, the device itself looks great, and painting the winglets is a slick touch, but what with the colours and the blob on the aft fuselage...
It's enough to drive anyone back to Loganair's tweed.
