Oh no, you mean it may have been repainted into the usual company colours at Maastricht. Thanks all the same. If so this will be the only glimpse I got of the colourful bird: 4358597 But still, I think, HA-LXJ and HA-LYG are showing the Olympic colours. Anybody knows where they are based now? Frippe
