In response to the visitor from France. It is not that simple though... Why if it only saved money is this sight still a relative rarity? No, there are downsides too... It comes with its own disadvantages. Most notably it imposes increased wear on and allows quicker weathering of the fuselage. On the long term this means increased maintenance... and thus costs. With your estimation at hand... and using a spacious estimate of 1000 lbs of total paint weight for a 747-400... that makes for $500 000 a year. I admit a significant amount. But in the end, replacing 2 wing root farings (yes I'm aware they are painted on this ac)... or a whole nose section... or ANY part of the fuselage....
This, I read, is the reason why Air Canada, after trials with one (or a few?) of their pax 767's around 2006 in bare metal, returned to standard painting.

I Like the metal

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 17, 2006:
This is perhaps the most beautiful livery ever applied to a B747, its like thc classic liners of the '30s.

This is a one PLANE tht i want to fly and the picture is verrrrrrrrryyyyyyyyy good

A visitor from France posted Sun October 15, 2006:
A striped paint B747 fuselage saves several hundred pounds of weight that could be use as extra payload. Paint is quite heavy and it is estimated that keeping an extra 2 lbs of paint on a B747 increase operations costs by as much as $1000 / year! No wonder why more and more airlines use "silver bullets" in their cargo fleet. And Boeing is studying how they could save weight the same way on their future Dreamliner engines.

I love this metal- scheme

A visitor from Namibia posted Sun October 15, 2006:
The plane looks funny without a real paint job

A visitor from Spain posted Sat October 14, 2006:

Splendid timing, great focus,awsome visualisation of power and energy to the service of man. Poetry in brute force.

A visitor from Sweden posted Sat October 14, 2006:
Beautiful scenery. Great shot.

A visitor from Uruguay posted Sat October 14, 2006:
Looks cool, but I prefer them as before. You can barely read the airline in the fuselage. T.B.

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 14, 2006:
I love the all aluminum look. Great shot.

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 14, 2006:
Oh, yuck.
I mean, it's a great picture. But an atrocious livery.
I'd prefer to continue to look down on the bare-metal look as this north-Texas thing.
