Classic paint scheme of SWISSAIR, an airline, that was for decades was one of Europe's famous airlines. The nice silhouette of the Coronado is also striking, because it shows a real jet airliner from the good old days.

I was many flights on board of this famous Plane as Flight Engineer for Swissair. It was our GT (Gran Tourismo) of the whole Fleet! Sporty an powerful.
