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!

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.

Great memorabilia from times past.
