Austrian Airlines "1000 Year Austria"

Tue Mar 13, 2001 11:30 am

Hi All,

Autrian Airlines has an Airbus 321 with special color
scheme, named "Pinzgau, 1000 Years Austria."

It has many faces painted on the plane, with Mozart
on the tail wing. I am wondering if anyone knows who
the rest of the people painted on that plane are?

I really liked that color scheme, but the thing is that its already gone. They've repainted the plane into a "Strauss Anniversary" color scheme about a year ago and now that the Strauss year is over the plane (OE-LBB) has got the standard
AUA livery.
