A thing of beauty! I wish airlines would return to the days of colorful "cheat line" liveries instead of the dull and boring paint schemes that pass as liveries today.

Looking at the thumbnail at first glance I thought United painted one of their 744s in the Friend Ship livery, then after looking at the photographer's name I realized it's another classic gem by R.A.Scholefield!
