A new special scheme from Kulula, Flying 101. Various parts of the aircraft are named, and funny slogans added. The aircraft has more writing on the other side. Should become ZS-ZWP.

I like this photo of the green plane with green grass and grey sky! Interestingly the registration OK-PIK is an owl in N. Canada.

What an awesome livery. May not have been the best of weather, but she still stands out against the dull sky. I love Kalula's way of doing things.

Although it's a great idea, I don't think it's wise to mark the black box ^^

I really love this scheme! I think it's great that they've labeled everything, it's quite comical and educational. and I appreciate that it is being shared (in picture form) with everyone on this site. Great job.

Absolutely brilliant paint scheme. I laughed out loud on some of the comments... Big Cheese, Throne Zone, Black Box, Loo... I wish for more planes with such a sense of humor.

Certainly a fine piece of photography, but what a great idea for a plane! I'd love to see this bird in person.

In case you were wondering about the small print, found a good summary:

The captain’s window is marked with the big cheese (”captain, my captain!”), the co-pilot’s window with co-captain (the other pilot on the PA system) and the jump seat is for wannabe pilots.

In addition, the following descriptions can be found:
* galley (cuppa anyone?)
* avionics (fancy navigation stuff)
* windows (best view in the world)
* wing #1 and #2
* engine #1 and #2 (26 000 pounds of thrust)
* emergency exit = throne zone (more leg room baby!)
* seats (better than taxi seats)
* some windows = kulula fans (the coolest peeps in the world)
* black box (which is actually orange)
* landing gear (comes standard with supa-fly mags)
* back door (no bribery/corruption here)
* tail (featuring an awesome logo)
* loo (or mile-high club initiation chamber)
* rudder (the steering thingy)
* stabiliser (the other steering thingy)
* a.p.u. (extra power when you need it most)
* galley (food, food, food, food…)
* boot space
* ZS-ZWP (OK-PIK) = secret agent code (aka plane’s registration)
* overhead cabins (VIP seating for your hand luggage)
* fuel tanks (the go-go juice)
* cargo door
* aircon ducts (not that kulula needs it… they’re already cool)
* front door (our door is always open … unless we’re at 41 000 feet)
* cockpit window = sun roof
* nose cone (radar, antenna, and a really big dish inside)

Kulula is the sponsor of ZAnews, a satirical puppet show created by cartoonists. I think that team might have thought up the jokes.

This photo has to make everyone who sees it smile or laugh after they have read the small print. Everything is so serious these days it is good to see a large corporate putting some humour into their product

Love the graphic detail, appealing to young and old alike. hope a decent percentage of the "hit" revenue goes to the airline.anything that makes me grin these days is well worth the effort, thanks kulula!
