Germanwings A319 D-AKNO New C/s Or "Pimp My Ride"

Thu May 19, 2005 2:47 am

You gotta see this - it is not yet in the a.net database, but the new livery is, well, quite special....:

Certainly a major attraction for spotters over the coming months !

A bear. The animal is the symbol of the city of Berlin where Germanwings will set up its 3rd base soon.

Does anyone know if this is the first of the ex-US 319's to join the Germanwings fleet ? Since D-AKNO is c/n 1147 ex N727UW has anyone seen c/n 1136 ex N726US which actually left the US fleet around 2 weeks before 727UW did ? Btw N728UW and N729US have also left the US fleet for conversion to Germanwings standards. And also thanks Unique for the info.

By the way...what does the banner above eye and across the door say?
It looks it says "BerlinerBus"?

(or is what I think is an "eye" actually an "ear"?)

It needs some low rider shocks for the landing gear, so it can squat onto the nacelles. Also the joystick needs to be replaced with a piece of chain with the links welded together.

That's supposed to be a bear? Honestly, from the color tone I thought it was supposed to be a fox. Nonetheless, it is definitely eyecatching, though I prefer bears on planes like this  Wink :

It is a special livery celebrating their new base at Berlin's low-cost airport Schönefeld. They also have a special livery that pays tribute to their home-base Cologne/Bonn.

Quoting Jorge1812 (Reply 24):

They already serve SXF from a couple of airports. It will become a proper base on June 5, 2005.

Quoting Stirling (Reply 20):

Maybe a reference to the double-decker busses for which Berlin is known (not nearly as prominenty as London's routemaster buses though).

The bear wears sunglases and therefore the cockpit windows represent they eyes. The ears are the ears ... But the white-framed nose is a little misleading.

But nevertheless .... awesome !
