Aviation Photo #1404794 Boeing 747-4D7 - Thai Airways International

[ Medium Large ]
381 of 504
A very close detail view of the ex Royal Barge livery's First and Economy Class section along with the unmistakable logo of Thai Airways International. Its imagery is excellently worked out, very profound and I would describe it with the following: Basically the ornament consists of three main things: Firstly, it contains a magnolia blossom (indicated with the pink part), secondly we can find a stylised version of the typical Thai salutation "Wai", if you rotate the logo 90 degrees in a clock-wise direction (only in this picture though) and as a third it represents the characteristically pitched roofs. And all that put into one with the colors of gold, standing for the temples, the purple representing the tropical orchids as well as the Thai silk's glamour - a true piece of art!

THAI's smooth as silk liveries have been among the best for a couple of decades now and stand out at every airport. Great idea, Mathias, to focus on the logo and explain it to us in so many details. Thanx. W.H.

Excellent tribute! I was so excited in 1975, age 14, living in Singapore, when the original Thai orchid colour scheme appeared. I flew on the first DC-10 that summer. If I had a list of favourite paint jobs of all time, the 1975 scheme would be right up there, but this version keeps enough of it to preserve the magic. The '75 lettering was exuberant and extovert, while this revision is dignified while still evoking flavour of Thailand. Nice work.
