C-GDSP / 613 (cn 24142/229) Here it is... the Sparkling Silver 762. A smart move by Air Canada to further reduce fuel cost. More than 300 pounds of paint were removed giving the plane this silver look. Will be tested for a few weeks, if the results are good this scheme will be applied to the whole 767 fleet. AC402 from YYZ.

Oh wow. 300 pounds. 2 men. Great job Air Canada!

A visitor from Canada posted Mon March 17, 2008:
I think it looks good, can you see the stress cracks better now?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed August 29, 2007:
Always liked this scheme, very shiny, and also cost-effective. Shame they didn't keep it.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri February 2, 2007:
Note the sharp flaps

A visitor from Canada posted Fri February 2, 2007:
Nice detail

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri November 24, 2006:
Very nice picture, but I hate the colour scheme, it really looks awful!

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Sat October 21, 2006:
The water vapour makes the aircraft more sharp as ever!

A visitor from United States posted Wed October 18, 2006:
I love the tail of the plane

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat August 5, 2006:
I like canada with the polished metal but definately prefer the green they have painted them!

A visitor from United States posted Thu December 22, 2005:
I like the polish, but what the hell is with the green? They need to polish the tail and nosecone, then paint the engines red. Lose the green trim!

As far as saving weight goes, I'm under the impression that other things can go before the paint.

Lovely air Canada 767-233/er in a silver look
keep taking photos of silver 767's

Goooooooooood on you boeing and air canada
767 233 rules

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 2, 2005:
I saw this aircraft today in FLL. It's alright looking but I would not want the entire 767 fleet in this scheme maybe just one or two as a special edition or something.

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 30, 2005:
I suppose with some of the backlash that I'm seeing about the color scheme I may be in the minority for saying this. However, I absolutely love this scheme! Who says you need to have lots of colors to be pretty! I like to think of it as the gal with the nice shiny dress! It's just too bad that the skies couldn't have been a bit more open to you, but it's still one sweet lookin' shot! Keep up the good work!

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 29, 2005:
For those who made a negative comment about saving 300 lbs, obviously you don't work for an airframe or engine manufacturer... We attack lbs (or kilograms!) one at a time...

A visitor from Venezuela posted Sat November 26, 2005:
Great livery, looks like hard steel

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 24, 2005:
This is a nice snapshot, well centered, but its an ugly colour. good thing this tin can will be flying 35000 feet where nobody can see it.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed November 23, 2005:
Very nice shot - nicely framed and very sharp.
I'm disappointed in some of the idiotic comments by some of the visitors. The airframe doesn't look polished because it's reflecting an overcast sky - sheesh, can you not figure that out?
And for those not aware of the facts, Air Canada is doing very nicely financially and this is another example of what they can do to cut costs. It costs fuel to carry weight. What is 300 pounds? It's almost 2 pax carried for no cost in fuel. At over $100 a minute in fuel costs why should they waste gas to please plane watchers who want to see fancy paint? grow up guys.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed November 23, 2005:
Instead of removing its skin, AC needs to sack its bosses and get some real competent people to handle the company! Its a pathetic move! Next, they're going to think of removing a few tyres from the landing gear to cut costs?! WTF?!!

A visitor from Canada posted Wed November 23, 2005:
What difference does 300 punds make?

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 22, 2005:
This scheme will really make a lot of difference weightwise...it's a good idea and I love the silver!
Beautiful!

A visitor from Spain posted Tue November 22, 2005:
Fantastic photo! But what a poor airline philosophy Air Canada has! I am ashamed (and I am speaking as a real Canadian -double nationality-) is if Air Canada goes on like this, I shall fly no more with them. What an ugly "color" sheam! The only nice, like said beforehand, is the tail.

A visitor from Malaysia posted Mon November 21, 2005:
I am not sure if this will work for Air Canada. Somehow, the silver part looks a bit dirty.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun November 20, 2005:
I'm not so sure og this either. Isn't this aircraft now prone to heavy corrosion? Hmmm.

A visitor from Greece posted Sun November 20, 2005:
If Air Canada wants to reduce its fuel costs then it should buy airplanes from Airbus....
But, for god sake, leave the beautiful paintsheme of Air Canada on.

A visitor from New Zealand posted Sun November 20, 2005:
Amazing livery, the tail works so well with the chromatic fuselage. It's cool AND economical. What a great idea!

A visitor from Canada posted Sat November 19, 2005:
Far out

A visitor from Germany posted Sat November 19, 2005:
Looks nice! But this only works on an "old" boeing. An airbus without paint would look a bit strange :)

A visitor from Italy posted Sat November 19, 2005:
Cool livery. However, if the tail was also chrome, it would look better...the Color really puts things off. Other than that, a great livery.

A visitor from Australia posted Sat November 19, 2005:
EWWW....my god at least AA made it nice, honestly WTF is this, it looks like a naked mole rat

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 18, 2005:
EEWWWWWW!!! What an eye sore! Air Canada 767s are going to do a strip tease before their retirement. Old ladies don't look pretty when they're naked. Thank God it is only temporary.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 18, 2005:
The tail is nice, but I have mixed feelings about the rest of the plane.

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 18, 2005:
I love it! It looks fine! I don't think it's ugly!

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 18, 2005:
I think it looks alright, it would look even better if the metal was polished more.

A visitor from Finland posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Remove the paint from the nose! That's how this livery would look more better

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Picture is amazing, but the colour scheme sucks ass!

A visitor from Australia posted Fri November 18, 2005:
What an outrage!AC should of stuck with their original colour scheme.Leave the polished look to AA!!!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Nice pic, paint needs work.

A visitor from Spain posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Nice Picture, Ugly aircraft. And, with the Canada´s weather, is a risk not to protect the fuselage...
But, you can see the positive side: when AC will close, it seems to be the next "smart" step to reduce cost, the airliners which buy their planes will save money changing the liveries. XD. Good Luck, Air Canada.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Is it beautiful? It's a very personal view, but to me it looks different! =)

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 18, 2005:
I love the polish on her! I hope they keep it up!

A visitor from - posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Great scheme!!! who needs all the white when silver looks so good!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 18, 2005:
This is an accurate representation of what AC is doing, less and less and less. No more food, no more pillows, no more service and now, no more paint. What's next? Flight attendants in underwear? 300 lbs less? That's two passengers or should I say one north-American one. Big deal! The baby-metallic-blue was tacky enough now it's beer-can bare. The tail may look fine in pictures but in reality it does not stand out and looks fuzzy and cheap. Bring back some class, please.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Beautiful picture, ugly aircraft! Sorry folks, there's no metal skin on a radome or an engine cowl to polish, they're composites! That's why the paint's still on 'em. Same as all the other 'grey' bits. That thing needs another week with the polishers to even it out, but even then it'll still be butt-ugly.

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Great photograph. But am I the only one who thinks this airplane looks like an old Airstream camper with wings?!? Hope this livery doesn't stick.

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 18, 2005:
The loss of fuselage paint really ages the aircraft. Ugh

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Beautiful livery and it saves 300 pounds. That's one more overweight passenger who's pure profit!!

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 18, 2005:
*screams bloody murder* hides in corner

Let this be a lesson to AC, bare metal and peppermint blue do not get along.

A visitor from Mexico posted Fri November 18, 2005:
It looks hideous to me! Makes the aircraft look way too old and in bad shape.

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 18, 2005:
What the hell is my airlines doing

A visitor from Australia posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Hey it looks fine but what about corrosion...

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 18, 2005:
Good Shot but i like the good old colors

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Great photo, Youri - thanks for your dedication to be out and spotting this... the spray is a nice touch the photo.

Everytime I think Air Canada has hit the absolute lowest point, they seem to prove me wrong and head downhill a little deeper. I still like the tail, but looks awful mixed with the bare fuselage and hideous engine colour. Just an attrocious livery, disgraceful to Canada.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 17, 2005:
A lovely photograph, but a butt-ugly airliner. Fire your entire livery design team, Air Canada!

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 17, 2005:
POOR Air Canada.... uglier month by month. Hope this is temporary, cause I tought they were out of bankruptcy. No more pillows, no more food, no more paint, what next ? Thanks Youri for the picture.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 17, 2005:
It's a good picture, centered, focused BUT there's the ugliest darn livery I ever did see! It's done dirt cheap! Shame on you A/C, all other shiny metal liveries are nice, but that's an eye sore!

A visitor from - posted Thu November 17, 2005:
The tail detail is very interesting with the blank shadow of the maple leaf on the dotted and seemingly sturdy tail of the Aircraft!
The fuselage reminds me of a bullet!

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 17, 2005:
That looks terrible. The tail doesn't match at all, it looks like AA bought out AC. I don't see how this is going to save money at all. Its the same thing for not letting half a dozen fat people get on board a plane itself!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Great look, I LOVE it. Very retro!

A visitor from Belgium posted Thu November 17, 2005:
It looks OK but I prefer the red ones

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Look very good

A visitor from Egypt posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Good photo to the extent it shows how ugly this thing is!

A visitor from France posted Thu November 17, 2005:
WOAH !!!!This is simply beautiful .The only thing is the engines's paint who should be removed.I'll really enjoy it if it's applied to the whole AC fleet .They would be welcome at heathrow!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Shot's ok, but the livery is hideous.

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
I think I would like the livery much more if Air Canada had retained the solid green tail with red maple leaf scheme. Bare metal plus strong color accents would nicely echo the brilliantly garish CP Air scheme from the 1970s.

A visitor from Portugal posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Nice picture, awful plane. What´s happening to Air Canada? It looks retro and dirty. As said before: "if you´re gona polish, polish it like AA, Aeromexico or JAL Cargo do. I am yet to see some pic´s of this plane with shiny weather but I am waiting for the worst after seeing some taken from very short distance at they're site. It reminds me of the old Condor livery... "Many years ago". If this is the only way to go cause of rising fuel prices, I am starting to hate OPEP. If everyone is going this way to save costs, in a few years we will have to always wear sunglasses while spotting at airports to avoid hurting our eyes with all the sunshine reflexes on the fuselages...something.. That use to be a problem only if you were spotting in the US.

A visitor from Chile posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Look like a flying scrap, (that aluminum finish fuselage) but the tail is well. Air Canada should improve that basic scheme.

A visitor from Israel posted Thu November 17, 2005:
It looks great, but something must be done with the engines they are ugly with that paint

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Nice one, at the moment this is quite a rare picture. time will tell if it wil stay so.
I hope the minor fuel saving reduction of barely 140kg of paint will cover the cost of corrosion repair. It is to be expected the friction drag on the fuselage is also saving. but didn't we already try'd this in the early 80's?
ah. what.. it looks great anyway :D

A visitor from Australia posted Thu November 17, 2005:
I wonder... Will making the plane lighter reduce fuel costs?? Which can you throw the farthest, a heavy rock or a light plastic ball?

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Thu November 17, 2005:
OH Man i never seen a sliver paint ugly enough like that

A visitor from Hungary posted Thu November 17, 2005:
In my opinion, the only thing that makes this plane bad-looking is the combination of grey and silver. Silver worked for American, so why should it not work for AC? This should be only the beginning, they should "develop" the scheme, with a more attractive colour on the tail, engines and nose.

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Paint the engines red to match the rest of the livery ....then it would look much better !

A visitor from Russian Federation posted Thu November 17, 2005:
I like it.

A visitor from France posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Its a nice idea, but the execution is not great more work needs to be done to the bare metal treatment.

A visitor from Trinidad And Tobago posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Excellent idea from a business point of view if it will in fact help reduce fuel costs and help to maintain excellent service... what do you prefer, good service or a great looking plane? Good Luck A/C

A visitor from Sweden posted Thu November 17, 2005:
BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If only they would have taken the paint off the engines too!!

A visitor from Singapore posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Shiny fuelsage, except the nose cone.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu November 17, 2005:
This plane looks very old, because of this color! The white ones are the best!

A visitor from Malaysia posted Thu November 17, 2005:
God,It look awful at all!What a cool looking maple leaf design on the tail,but overall silver for Air Canada fleet?Got to think again on it....

A visitor from Germany posted Thu November 17, 2005:
How can people who get a lot of money for their job, develop such an ugly livery.

The tail is OK, but the difference between the body and the engines hurts my eyes. I hope this will be just a test.

A visitor from France posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Ugh... it looks awful. I understook metal finishes are more labor intensive to maintain so maybe not as efficient as one would think. Let's hope they drop this idea.

A visitor from Uruguay posted Thu November 17, 2005:
In this Day and Age with rising fuel costs you have to think more about saving money than looking good. I think this scheme looks excellent.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Nice photo but ugly aircraft. Ok, saving money is good but then one also has to think about the attractiveness of the plane. It is really ugly like this. What if everyone would remove the paint on their cars to save money!?

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
I think I could get used to it ... rather a retro '50s feel to it ... it's not as shiny as AA but it's an older bird. Maybe with the nacelles in a more contrasting color it'd look even better.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Nice picture, ugly scheme. They need to talk to American to find out how to pull off the bare metal scheme. Great shot tho.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Excellent photo and I really like the new paint scheme

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Penny wise and pound foolish

A visitor from Germany posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Looks cheap! AC had a very nice scheme before the recent change...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Great photo, N-A-S-T-Y aircraft, its not been polished enough so it looks bloody awful IMO, but newho great shot!

A visitor from Switzerland posted Thu November 17, 2005:
What a butt ugly Plane and colors.
Air Canada is becoming a really bad Airline.But this Picture is interesting and good details nice shot.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Time will tell if the canadian climate will accomodate this non paint scheme.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Simply great!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
It's not terrible, but not really stunning either. AC needs a heads up from AA about doing the metallic/silver look, this just looks tinny. Why'd they leave the engines white, and whats with the tail? It doesn't match at all.

A visitor from Germany posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Wanna be! dont like it, this airline doesn't have an identity, they should stick to one, like KLM, air france, lufthansa, etc, or do it like ba, change to one good one, but not have so many different/ugly cs flying around!!!

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Thu November 17, 2005:
I think silver is only suitable to be put on American Airlines!

A visitor from Germany posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Very ugly, it looks horrible ... But nice Picture :)

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
One UGLY plane. It costs them $20,000 to strip the paint and save $24,000 on fuel costs yet lose much more on customers who have chosen to fly on slightly more professionally attired aircaft. Canadian accountancy? Go figure . . .

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
I dunno, it kind of has a retro thing happenin there. It's not bad

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 17, 2005:
As another viewer wrote, good photo for an ugly plane. Looks like an unfinished plane. I like much better the livery introduced when Air Canada came out of bankruptcy protection.

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Its not that bad

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Great photo! but the plane looks dirty already. they aught to put the nose cone and everything else is silver but if there is metal on the cone the radar won't work. oh well.

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Excellent shot, but in my opinion this livery doesn't look good on Air Canada Planes.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 17, 2005:
It looks really good! And the fuel reduce is really good what a smart airline

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Air Canada is losing its own identity...hopefully it will be painted in full red with green "Air Canada" which could catch people's attention.

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Air Canada's liveries have been in decline from years past. The best one was the 80s two tone red seen in their first A320s. They do not seem too happy with their new "primer" look. Some A320s are flying with only the new tail cs. This metallic look is not that appealing (it still looks incomplete and not clean). At least, it is something new to put on slides :)

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 17, 2005:
Really doesn't look that bad. If the engines were painted in that gray that AA uses it would look even better.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed November 16, 2005:
It looks ugly.

A visitor from Mexico posted Wed November 16, 2005:
I agree, bad plane, and bad polish job, but as Youri said, smart move.

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Yeah, i hate it! I don't like it much for me. I like with white scheme is much better.

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Looks like a 7-up can.

A visitor from Costa Rica posted Wed November 16, 2005:
The shot is great, but the bare metal scheme is disgusting.

A visitor from Canada posted Wed November 16, 2005:
They should of polished the rest of the plane, not just the body, then it would look better, but I prefer the old livery to this.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Wed November 16, 2005:
It's a good photo, but this is a very ugly aircraft. in part it looks like they didn't buff the airframe enough.

A visitor from Ireland posted Wed November 16, 2005:
I don't know. . . . The paint scheme seems ok, yet it doesn't seem to be polished that well. I suppose it's a change anyway!

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed November 16, 2005:
Fabulous, it literally looks like Heavy metal in the air.

A visitor from United States posted Wed November 16, 2005:
I hate it! The only thing that looks good is the tail!
