I saw this one in the paint hangar at PAE back on July 26...thought it looked pretty stylin' at the time, and I only saw the tail! Great shots.

WOW, looks great! Congrats to my neighbors to the north.  Smile I know a few people in Angola, who normally do not give a darn about planes, and they are so proud of this airline - it gives their nation a face other than what the world normally sees, which is starvation, poverty and war. I am sure they are extremely proud to see this great plane in this great scheme.

I would guess LIS has to be the #1 destination for this bird, followed by GRU and than JNB

A little correction, GRU is not TAAG destination, its GIG.

Ah, ok, thanks, my mistake. Than I would replace GRU with GIG as #2 on my guess list.

That's a hot looking 777! I wish the best of luck to TAAG. I hope that not only the new livery, but also the new aircraft become a symbol of a country making progress after a long time of suffering and poverty.

Absolutely stunning! A very modern take on a long-standing livery. It looks amazing on the T7. And those engines......  drool

I was born in Angola and lived there until 1975. I live in Renton now and have seen both new 737's in the new livary soon after roll out. The livary looks very smart on the 737 as well as the 772.

I hope Clickhappy can swing by Renton and catch the second 737 in full livary that appeard this week at RNT. My lens is not long enough to photographs planes at RNT. Or maybe at BFI when the plane ends up there.

I am very proud of this new livary and of TAAG.I flew them back when they were DTA and after they were re-named TAAG, all flights were on Fokker F27's.
