US Airways
It's looked much better than the silver.
BUT
TWA is in a close running with their new look. Much better than the red stripes.

Let's see, since the topic is "Top 3 Paint Schemes" (not 5 or 10) I'll post these 3. Not 5 and not 10. ONLY 3, like the topic says.

Did I make my point? Hope so.

1. USAirways- Sharp, yet not flashy
2. TWA- Much better than the boring pinstripe(s)
3. Southwest and Western Pacific- For their innovations in having many different schemes
