Little Planes In Large Carrier Liveries

Thu Mar 23, 2006 7:03 am

Do you know any little planes (gliders, props or other small equipment) that is, for any reason, painted in a large carrier's livery?

These are the ones I can think of:

I need to see if I can do something like that to my car...make it more B6ish. I should see about getting on that Pimp My Ride show to make my care look like a plane! LOVE IT!!!

Okay, so I was a little off.  footinmouth  I only see the MD-10's and the 727 that hasn't moved since I started working at JFK. I knew that they probably had about 100, but I never thought they had that many.  eyepopping

They've also got a light aircraft in TUI colours as well, but for the life of me I can't find the image. Don't know what sort of aircraft it is either which doesn't really help!

Quoting Ralgha (Reply 10):

FX does own the C208 pictured. Cessna worked specifically to design it for FX! Pilot services are contracted to Baron Aviation.

The Caravan I has had a close association with US package freight specialist Federal Express (FX), on whose request Cessna especially developed two pure freight versions. The first of these was the 208A Cargomaster (40 delivered), the second was the stretched 208B Super Cargomaster (260 delivered). The first Super Cargomaster flew in 1986 and features a 1.22m (4ft) stretch and greater payload capacity, including an under fuselage cargo pannier. FedEx's aircraft lack cabin windows.


Took this from our ramp a few days ago.

Commercially speaking MAS flies 744 & DHC6 in their own colors.
ET also flies DH6s but their largest equipment is 763.
