That is a bada$s looking jet.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue April 21, 2015:
I am not a big 747 fan but this scheme looks amazing!

A visitor from United States posted Tue April 21, 2015:
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.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon January 26, 2015:
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.

Absolutely one of the best, if not THE best livery ever! It is missed!

A visitor from United States posted Thu August 4, 2011:
The last Trans World livery looked the best on the airline's 747s. Same with the last Pan Am livery.

A visitor from United States posted Tue June 21, 2011:
My signature is on this aircraft would love to see a 777 or the 748 in this color scheme if TW were still around!

A visitor from - posted Tue June 21, 2011:
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.

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat December 18, 2010:
Just the perfect example of how an airplane (and an airline paint scheme) should look like...

747 forever!!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 31, 2010:
This is the best livery ever. I wish American would paint one like this.

Very nice livery ! We sure miss TWA, one of the world

I agree

A visitor from - posted Thu March 11, 2010:
A380 can never take the majestic appeal from Boeing 747 away.

A visitor from United States posted Thu March 11, 2010:
So beautiful. Never forget...

A visitor from Austria posted Thu March 11, 2010:
Brings back great memories - I do miss "my airline" - I'm proud having been part of their team!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 9, 2006:
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.

A visitor from United States posted Sat September 9, 2006:
