Looks mean, and sinistar.

Yeah that "blue mask" around the cockpit windows looks sort of aggresive. But it's nice and I wish today there were more imaginative color schemes such as this one.

WOW! This is the livery I grew up with. I absolutely love the "Vlieƫnde Springbok" (Flying Springbuck) emblem. PS. All SAA flights still uses the "Springbok" callsign today. Brings back memories!
