In Need Of A Repaint............

Fri Nov 11, 2011 10:41 pm

I've waited till over 24 so not to 'plug' my own photo. I took this in MIA last week and has to be the worst state of paint i've ever photographed.

I've seen several AF ones posted before, so thought it fitting to start a new thread allowing others to share there worst paint schemes.

Don't see why that is in need of a repaint. A wash maybe, but don't see any paint flaking off.

I was surprised to see this one in such poor shape, usually the US Airways fleet paint is in good shape.

G-VXLG of Virgin Atlantic looks quite terrible even though it got paint just a few months ago.
