What Airplane+livery Do You Connect The Most With?

Fri Feb 11, 2005 5:56 am

For me it's definately the old SK livery on their F-28:s
Flew on them many times when I was a little kid!

The widget, it is kinda ugly but I don't know how many times I flew on one of those (probably over 100)! A close second is the old HP livery.
We're gonna do what we like to call a "jetBlue how do you do", which is slang for dumping a bunch of fuel in the ocean

I have to say the American Airlines livery.......

My first flight was on a B767-200 from JFK-PHX in 1993, I was about 13 months old I think.

I flew on American Airlines so many times when I was little, so I must say I am very conected with this livery and even though I am not a fan, I would be devistated if they changed it!

Avianca and the MD-83, which I have flown countless times with the airline. This aircraft is the workhorse of domestic routes in Colombia, with the 3 big airlines and SAM using it.

When I was younger I would draw pictures of United Airlines planes (the airline that I always flew) and was fascinated with the 747-400. I didn't know much about the technical attributes of aviation but found airplanes, especially the 747, to be "awesome"! So my pick goes to the UAL 747's in their older liveries...

click at the bottom of the "your post" thing and there is some thing that says

"Read how to include links, pictures and smilies! (opens in new window)"

and scroll down and it tells you how to include photos, its really easy.

B772ER became my favourite when I first saw a BA772ER at WLG in 2002. I even have 1 of 3 pictures produced with the BA B777 with the queen standing beside it, with the NZ army, air force and navy personal.

The NZ livery is the one that I connect with as I'm a born and breed New Zealander

Canada 3000 A330. Had a great flight on one, 7 years ago but still stands out as my most memorable flight, in-flight cockpit visit etc.

FI B757. Brings back memories of a great trip to the US.

For me, its the 767-300ER. I particularly like the BA Landor scheme (and the RR engines).

I also like USA 3000's livery on the A320 - I had a great flight on one of these birds.

For me, most times it's the one that is taking me home! and in most cases it's DL. Maybe not the spiffiest, but I still enjoy seeing it (unless I'm at ATL, then I long for anything else, for the sake of contrast)
773675

One I'll never see again was my first flight ever, an Eastern 727 "WhisperJet"
244147

But then I still remember so well a Varig 707 in the 70's, my first international flight. For years, the livery hardly changed.
486428

These days, Continental, Southwest, American and the new United leave me cold. Always thought AirFrance was classy!

BTW, my first time trying to post pics. . . . hope it works.
