Look At This KLM ERJ Beauty!

Fri May 12, 2000 5:06 pm

Well, maybe I'm repetitive but ones again I have to say that the litlle jungle-jet looks terrific. Every new operator give a new shine to Embraer and every new paint job revalutate the ERJ.

In the KLM Exel colors looks just perfect, elegant and smooth. I like it a lot, how about you?

Thanks.

I've always wondered what KLMuk would look like on an ERJ.
As all the Liveries are the same.
that Livery also looks great on the F.100 but does not look nice on the F.50.

KLM Alps

Sun May 14, 2000 1:44 am

First: The Air Alps/KLM Alps Dornier 328 is really a beauty and I guess we will see more in the near future, most likely even the 328JET and 428JET (not a rumour but Air Engiadina which has a close relationship to KLM Alsp was connected with it).

Second: Does someone know if the Dornier 328, aquired from PB-Air, has already been repainted into KLM Alps colors?

If you mean the OE-LKD no. I've seen only the OE-LKA, LKB and LKC in KLMalps c/s. The OE-LKD is still in its "special" c/s with KLMalps titles.

As for KLMexel ERJ. I've heard they get some more.

Well I will agree that it looks good, but it's unfortunate the Brazilian government feels that they must supposrt their aviation industry in a communist like manner....I'm sure that if they did not do that, and the industry was forced to support it's self like every other airliner industry in the world (except airbus) they would not be what they are today.......

Slawko,

The same could be said for "Oh Caaanadaaa" or virtually any other manufacturing nation. Get off your high horse. Its a brutally competive industry and every manufacturer and every government tries to work every advantage they can find or create. Some just play the game better than others. Back to the subject at hand; I think the ERJ is beautiful in any scheme and KLM's livery would even make a TU-104 look great.

No one is on any high horse, I admit that Bombardier did get money from the government, and then Brazil took the issue to the WTO, and Canada lost, so the government was forced to stop pumping money into Bombardier. Then what did Brazil do??? The exact same thing, then Canada took them to the WTO and this time Brazil lost, but and they still refuse to stop giving money to Embraer..... And no other company gets money from the government for evey airplane that they sell, even airbus doesn't do that........
