Sabena Colours

Thu Feb 01, 2001 8:29 am

How many times do they insist on changing there colours? I have counted no less than 5 colour schemes in the last 5 years. Is this a Airline with a identity crisis?

It also makes it hard for us photographers to keep up.

The latest scheme is like BA! Well the underside anyway. I have posted a EDI shot from yesterday and It should appear shortly if accepted.

How long will it be before yet another change?

You take a big pile of dogshit.

You spraypaint the pile in Sabena colors.

What do you have?

I guess you are not a fan then?

The best colours I have seen for Sabena was on OO-DWD RJ100 which was painted in a nice colour back in 1998.

Sabena are everywhere in the UK so taking photos isn't that hard.

"Sabena are everywhere in the UK " - Cabbott

I challenge you to find a Sabena aircraft in their colours at LGW or LHR.

LGW,

Am I missing something?? If you do a search for "SABENA" and "LONDON" there are several pics that come up. Maybe I misunderstood the "Challenge"

Hi all

Sabena did operate at LHR years ago but now all services are operated by Virgin Express.

It wasn't until I was down at LHR last year that I realised that Sabena do not operate there anymore  Sad

Hi there,

this color needed to be changed as all members of the Qualifier Group will receive this blue belly. AOM, Swissair and Sabena have already the blue belly and the others will have to do the same.

If you want to take pictures of Sabena, go to Brussels, I think there should be some  Wink/being sarcastic

Regards

I think most of their colors are nice, they can change them as often as they want for all I care.

btw: the aviation photography forum has now passed 8000 posts. wow.  Smile

All these color changes might be moot pretty soon. Looks like Sabena might go belly-up unless the unions cave in in the next week or two. Unions are very powerful in Belgium, I believe.

Well... it;s really the colours that change, while theme is more constant. They must have loads of budget going to repainting their fleet.... or do they not even bother to repaint every plane. If that's the case, we could soon see every Sabena plane in its individual outfit  Smile.

BTW, Colin, it's really cool to see fresh pics from a local airport being uploaded frequently  Smile.

Thanks SashA

I hope you all enjoy the pictures. I like to update them as soon as I have them. Digital is great for that.

On the subject of Sabena, I like Gary thought they did operate out of LHR and LGW. You learn something new everyday.

What about the colours?

Just now we have the Sabena Billboard titles, the Sabena Blue scheme, Sabena Qualifier scheme and the new Sabena Qualifier scheme. Can you keep up with it?

This new Sabena colour is the ugliest ones in the last five years. It realy looks as if it was created 10 years ago. Futhermore makes no sense to create a common Qualiflyer coour sheme, as the the Qualiflyer group won't last much longer as SR got a new president and is now looking for an big alliance.
