Looking good hey? Awaiting for A.Net to display it in high definition and full glory. It is the very same aircraft, 9M-MXA, which caught many A.Netters by surprise when it was revealed in the airline's current livery for the first time in this A.Net photo

9M-MXA will be the only aircraft that will wear this MH retro livery.
A bit of a narrative, this livery was introduced in 1972 when MSA (Malaysia-Singapore Airlines) split up to create the current MH and SQ. It is regarded as the original livery for modern day MH. It seems to me that this project is to celebrate the 40th anniversary of modern history of MH (beginning from MSA break up onwards), which is depicted by the large 40 sticker near door 1L of the aircraft.
MH is organising a special flight MH 711 KUL-CGK and back to reveal this aircraft on 13 December 2012.
