Let us know what you think.

BA747-436, they should have kept a couple of the nice ones, but the FAA said it was too confusing to other aircarft to figure out which airline it was. O well

You sure that's thr right picture? Doesn't seem anything special about that to me! And even if you were gona pick a Cannadian 744, at least pick the newer livery!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

I dunno, there is something about the colours and font of the old CDN paint that I like. I even prefer it to world tails. The new one is very nice too though.

Old CDN livery:

There's also something about red and silver on an aircraft that makes me scream Smile I like Virgin Atlantic's scheme a lot especially on an A340:-o

Yeah, i agree. BWIA's new scheme is great, and so is VS's. But i am a bit surprised to hear that no-one liked the two "World Tails" that i suggested.
Also the QF ones!!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
I mean United???? Are you having a laugh? It's alright but nothing out of the ordinary. If we are looking at schemes like that then there would be no doubt in my mind that Cathay Pacifics new scheme kicks!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

the best looking aircraft type is the 747SP !!!  Smile/happy/getting dizzy
The best plane I've ever seen!

The best livery has Angola Airlines, Qantas & Ansett A.!

You wanna see a smart class tail!
Just have a look at a Tupolev Tu-154's tail!
They are not my prefered aircrafts and I know they are always dirty but look the shape.
