Funny Christmas Livery

Fri Aug 16, 2002 7:46 am

Hey guys,
Awhile back I saw a photo on A.net of an airliner with Santa Clause "splatted"on the nose.As if the plane had hit him.I tried searching for it but can't find it.Anyone know the photo i'm talking about and how to find it?Thanks for any help.

Can't it be the Santa Claus livery of the MD11 of Finnair (OH-LGC)?

I guess that Airhead711 means the Ryanair plane that is called Santa-Strike. I searched also in the a.net database but I could not find it. I think there is a picture of the plane on the FR homepage.

The Ryanair aircraft involved was B737-800 EI-CSC. There are seven pictures in the A.net datbase none of which have the Santa on the nose. It probably only lasted a few weeks but I have seen a picture of it somewhere.

Rule number one: SEARCH. This was covered last December and this picture was found by ILS

Or if it does not load: http://home.worldonline.dk/elfving/santastrike.jpg

Thanks everyone for the help.That is the one I am looking for SafetyDude.And I did search the database several times using every word related to Santa Clause I could think of with no luck.I couldn't search for "Santastrike"because I didn't know thats what it was called.Thanks again!
