I know BA have no DC10`s left but imagine a BA DC10 in one of their new colours!
That would look wonderful

I agree with you but I think you should have added United's new colors in the best. AA is just way too retro.They would look better if the can change the font of AMERICAN the AA on the tail as well as the font to the "luxuryairliner" I feel that the fonts are way too 70s. I like the bare-polished metal scheme though. But keep it polished or paint the fleet in siler paint like what Virgin did because I've seen quite a few AA planes that looked really dull and scratched whenever I got to JFK to spot planes.

One of only two aircraft in the American fleet, the size of the DC-10 really allows a lot of inherent beauty shine through. When this baby taxies, you really see the great reflections off of all that polish!

While a lot of people seem to love the PanAm paint, it is just way too much white for me. Also, there colors were very dull. Had they at least used brighter shades of white an blue, it may have looked a little better.

The DC-10 is an attractive aeroplane. And NWs scheme looks very good on it, I must admit. But I think that Americans shimmering colours also
make this plane very impressive. Uniteds current scheme is fine too, but first prize goes to:

I don’t think that any liveries look ugly, on any aircraft, but some don’t look right.

Air Pacific of Fiji leased a DC-10 several years ago and flew it in their then "flying fruit tingles" c/s. (Fruit Tingles were/are? an Aussie candy.) The plane had diagonal bands of colours, dark blue on the fin and aft fuselage. Red forward of that, then orange and yellow. The forward part of the fuselage was white. I reckon it was the best colour scheme I've ever seen on a DC-10. The worst would have to be anything with a military roundel or marking placed onto a DC-10!! (Okay so that was tongue in cheek!)

Re:VirginA340
What is so "70's" about the "American" title on the -10? It isn't really different than Lufthansa's font except for colour and the thin white outlining around the letters.
I DO agree on the changing of the word "luxuryjet."
Besides, why mess with perfection?

I find the silver and blue makes the plane look very fast and solid.


Usually I don´t like shemes where the major is white, looks mostly dirty and boring.
