The other is the old TWA double globe. I felt that the logos could have been bigger.

That red arrow and double golden globes will definantly stick out more in a foggy day than PAN Am's dark blue cheatline on their 707.

Braniff (Ultra colors) and Hughes Airwest are my all-time and childhood favorites. Long live the flying banana's!  Smile

Delta had a good color until the mid-90's or late 90's, or whenever they changed to those plain boring colors that they have now.
