Red Nailpolish On Wingpylons?

Fri Oct 06, 2006 5:22 pm

Always makes me chuckle when I see `red nailpolish´ on the tip of the wingpylons....

Any reason why they do it. To look good, or what?

What´s youre take on this?

China Airlines are one airline that do it off the top of my head.

I believe its a ramper safety/visual config ID thing.
