There was this other special paint scheme on a B767. A member of this forum,AT, was flying out of KHI in January.He saw and took pictures of this GF 767 that had made an unexpected landing at KHI because of heavy fog at ISB. He mailed me the pictures and as far i think that paint scheme on that B767 was different from the one you have pasted. But this one looks better actually. A340 looks great by the way.

Well, my personal favourite is the B767-300ER colours. Too bad there's only a single picture of A40-GJ in the special colours.  Sad

Anyway, I like them all - I have a GF calender at home it has nice backdrops of all the 50th anniversary colours. Its very thoughtful of GF to represent Arabic calligraphy on their a/c.
