Favourite Livery And Aircraft Combination

Wed Dec 19, 2007 6:49 pm

Ok, there have been many threads about favourite liveries and favourite aircraft types, but what would be your favourite livery on your favourite aircraft? The combination does not have to exist in real life.

For example my favourite combination would be Thai Airlines livery on the Boeing 777-300ER (such a combination does not exist)

So what would be your favourite aircraft/livery combination? You can list as many as you like.

My personal favorite was NE's original Yellowbird scheme, especially on the DC-9s & 727s:

I'd love to see this exact scheme on newer (like the 717 & 737) and/or larger planes (747, 757, 767, 777, L1011).

Gotta love the bowling shoe livery. I also think the new NW livery would look good on just about everything (well...i'm not too crazy about those Mesaba CRJ-900's though).

Because a lot of the rental bowling shoes that can be found in bowling alleys have a similar red, gray, and blue theme to them.

. . . and who first came up with the nick name "bowling shoe"? did NWA used it for marketing or the public did?
