i don't think it's one of those liveries that I would get all excited about; but it certainly isn't the ugliest. Just plain. To be honest with you, that green shading is kind of cool.

What the hell were they thinking when they chose to paint the nose and belly in this very light peppermint-ish green? Seriously, that's disgusting.  thumbsdown   vomit

It's a dare devil of a government!! But there are worst liveries flying around (the French government). This Taiwan-one used colours (maybe the president is colour- and emotionally blind).

That BBJII, if it's the same plane, used to have a rather conservative color scheme. And being around since as early as 2001, it's hardly brand new. Only the livery might qualify as new.

Mmmmm, I cannot believe this is an original picture. Does the green belly really make a gradient towards white. No way this picture is badly photoshopped.

If it was realy mint green it must be a mistake. I think the engine cowlings, hang up pylons and belly supposed to be in white. Maybe the original picture look like this and then I like it:

That is not really fair, that was a experiment in economics, not a concept livery. If AC all of a sudden discovered the removal of the paint saved a signifigant ammount of weight, thus saving fuel, all the airlines would be doing it.

The airline industry would have to be in a pretty desperate state to strip paint off thier planes to save a few bucks... oh, hang on, they are.

Sorry to disagree with you guys... but I think that plane looks good... any 737-800 with winglets has to be amongst the most beautiful planes ever! And the President of Taiwan's plane doesn't need to be colourful does it? That would have to be a certain Mr. Branson  Wink

You know what? That mint green is as mint green as the ice cream cone I had at Baskin Robbins yesterday. There is no question about the color of the paint.

Nobody makes cameras these days so cheap that any color (by the "shadow" of the doubt  Wink ) becomes or could be as misconstrued as green as this.

The peppermint greenish color on the under belly makes it nearly invisible looking up at it from the ground. Not a bad idea for a Presidential Plane to be somewhat stealthy.

At least two guys on here have it right! Look at the picture again: the mint green colour is also on the winglets, and it is obviously a trick of the light or a cheap camera problem: look at the gradient under the nose: there is no way that that is painted on the plane. IT'S AN OPTICAL ILLUSION GUYS!!!!

The official color of Democratic Progressive Party, which the President of Taiwan belongs to, is green. That is the main reason for the green. I agree this is not the greatest color of all, but since he is the President, he can do pretty much he wants.
The old color on that plane was reflecting the old ruling party, KMT, color.
It is all about politics....
