Pretty strange seeing Cathay with PW's. They must have been desperate to break their tradition.

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue April 17, 2007:
If you pay the money, maybe they will change to a new livery...I think the livery is ok. Green hills, green Cathay Pacific

A visitor from Sweden posted Fri February 2, 2007:
I'd like the livery...it's ok

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun June 4, 2006:
I agree with the person who said the livery was boring.Great shot though!

A visitor from United States posted Sat March 25, 2006:
It is exelent

A visitor from United States posted Wed March 8, 2006:
The PW's look so much better than the Rolls-Royce engines. Also they are much more powerful. I love the detail in this photo.

A visitor from United States posted Sun March 5, 2006:
Great contrast between the blurry background and the sharp details of the plane.

A visitor from United States posted Wed February 22, 2006:
I think that Cathy REALLY needs to change the livery, this is by far one of the most boring paint of all airlines!

A visitor from China posted Sun February 19, 2006:
Interesting to see those PW's on a CX B744.

A visitor from Pakistan posted Sat February 11, 2006:
Just Wonderful!!! I always like B747 At Landing Approach..

A visitor from Singapore posted Tue January 31, 2006:
Beautiful livery and powerful engine! Hope the aircraft enjoys flying the greatest airlines of the world.

A visitor from United States posted Fri January 27, 2006:

A visitor from United States posted Fri January 27, 2006:
What a beautiful shot. The color scheme blends in well with the background, and 3 of 4 Pratt & Whitney eagles in the shot to boot. Superb timing!

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue January 24, 2006:
Excellent shot!
