Atlast PIA are getting rid of those ancient F-27s with these modern more fuel efficient turbo props. I love the new colourful tail scheme aswell. Very eye catching !

Awesome photo!

I have always considered the ATR42 as the world's most beautiful turboprop, and this livery only makes it look better! I like how you got the tug in the frame too. Looking forward to seeing more shots of yours, Olivier.

Wow, this is one brilliant scheme introduced by PIA on its brand spanking new ATR-42. PIA has purchased a fleet of seven ATR-42 with options for more as well as ATR-72s as well. Look forward to seeing it in the air....

Great Photograph and very promptly reported as well.

I have just checked Air India Express livery and to me it has no resemblance with PIA.

FYI, PIA has introduced four new designs each representing one of its four provinces. The one painted on this ATR aircraft represents the province of Baluchistan and the first aircraft is dedicated to the city of Gawadar as "the new port city". The other ATR aircraft will have different tail paints and I am sure they will look equally good.

--- Cheers, Asim

Nicely composed, excellent details. Good work Olivier. Byebye to the old PIA Fokkers though I have good memories from them. Hello to the new ATRs. The ethnic livery makes it just gorgeous.

It is not copying Air India as they started recently. PIA's idea was to name the planes after cities, but keep the tail colors same for most of the planes named after cities in same province.
So if you see a plane named Quest it will be carrying the same tale stickers.
