I think I read somewhere that it commenced around 1976? I flew a Continental DC-10 pub flight from Vancouver to Honolulu in 1987...it would seem that bot...

I LOVE this livery...especially on the DC-9's/MD-83s. I especially love the fact that they used brown, because its not really used very much in airline liveries (now and back then). Transair used it on their golden jets in the 70's and that's the only carrier i remember (since Fiji Airways new schem...
