Excellent job!!! I'm proud to be French lol...this livery fits better on the fleet back in the 50's though...please note, the paint scheme is the one used for AF's Connies and Comets...anyway, it's an exciting retrojet!

The A320 looks great in this stylish version of the old livery. Well done AF!

So authentic... except for the use of Arial on the registration code. Beautiful shot.

Agreed... AF should change to this livery as LH should change to their retrojet livery shown on their A320!!!

Wonderful photo. Could you imagine a 744 in this color scheme? That would be a beautiful sight! Looks like they forgot to remove some of the paper as well... :)

I sure do prefer the stream lined paint jobs like there used to be about 40 years ago. This is a perfect example. Sometimes I shudder when I see the way they paint the airliners today. The new paint jobs seem to take away from the beautiful shape of the aircraft.

Great! At last! I was wondering why AF did not celebrate its history with an old color scheme. LH, Finnair, Iberia and many others did! This one is beautiful. Looks like an aviation postcard of the 60's. What about doing the same on a 777-300ER?

What a beautiful classic scheme - agree with the former post, AF should change back to this scheme in this age of retro - nice capture!

Nice bird. But if only AF's older sister would also introduce a nice retrojet...

Think an old man would have problems reading that reg.? Very nice retro livery. I agree with the other Airliners viewer about changing their livery to this one, much smarter looking and probably doesnt show dirt as much. ;)

Cool pic with a lot of detail. After American and Lufthansa it's nice to see that now Air France gets into the business of retro-painting one of their aircraft. Hopefully Air France partner KLM will be next to apply some of their old liveries on a 777..

This paint scheme is beautiful. AF's current scheme is boring and dated - this design is graceful and should be reinstated permanently!

Almost as nice as our Lufthansa Retrojet :-) I hope many other carriers will follow!

The tail design is much like Air India's old tail design, only then in blue.

Neat, but... what's wrong with AF's current livery? I love it! Overall white with red/blue accents, very classy! Less is more.
