Best Livery On The 747?

Wed Dec 06, 2006 8:19 pm

What's your favourite livery on the Boeing 747?
I'm thinking of the standard liveries. Add a special scheme if you will  Smile

These two are splitting me.
Just love these liveries.

Sadly she is standing very ignominiously at JNB at the moment with no engines  Sad
After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says WTF...

Singapore Airlines has the classiest.

But I think the new Air Canada livery wouldn't look bad on there either (AC does not have 747)

Whilst I agree with Trekster that the new BA livery is sweet. This one has to be my favourite:

One livery I would like to see is a 747 in the new AC colours.
