Whats better than a TWA heavy???? TWA had the best sheme ever, and the best people. I was lucky enough to enjoy TWA because my dad was a F/O with them. I wish we could see this again.

A380 can never take the majestic appeal from Boeing 747 away.

Just the perfect example of how an airplane (and an airline paint scheme) should look like...

Impressive action shot at the moment of touchdown. Truly one of the most beautiful paint schemes ever for an all-time classic airliner. Brings back fond memories of TWA, one of the great "fallen flag" airlines.

My signature is on this aircraft would love to see a 777 or the 748 in this color scheme if TW were still around!

The last Trans World livery looked the best on the airline's 747s. Same with the last Pan Am livery.

The 747 and that livery were made for eachother - that is a beautiful shot, and I always liked the jumbo best from this angle, when it was just touching down or just after rotation - really shows off it's majestic shape and proportions.

What a great livery on the majestic 747. The 747 has graced the worlds skies since 1969 and the A-380 will never touch it for style and class. Long live the Queen, long live the 747.
