when was white considered for concorde wings and underside? And date for its service entry in 1964/65?

Hello, something I noticed when I look at artwork or desktop models from before 1968 is they all seem to display metal belly and wings, I haven't seen any entirely white concorde from this period, so if someone know, can you please tell me when white was considered for the whole aircraft, not just t...

Re: Road considered for the tupolev 144 outside of russia and japan?

Aeroflot didn't used all of them too, the one from sinsheim doesn't seem to have been used by them, yet it still had the livery. There were negociation to allow it to fly over europe but considering the rules that were put in place (and flying over the US would be a big no for all SST's).

Re: if the tupolev 144 was exported, would it be sold only to the warsaw pact airlines or not?

There were ideas to fly it to japan/over europe, but it seems it relied to the plane being improved and from "concorde-Histoire d'un mythe", the negociation to allow concorde flying over the ussr started in 1974 and the russian asked about their plane being allowed to fly there too.

I know, I think if I do a what if tu 144S, it'll be as a joint operation with another airline like JAL. I'm guessing this would necessitate the autorization of the concorde and boeing SST to fly over the ussr since JAL had option for both.

What's the OEM? So if tupolev could get the autorization to fly tu 144 to japan, they'd have a hybrid livery (with the possibility of using both variants to go to japan?). Btw, I went inside a tu 144 at sinsheim, it was a good visit and interesting to spot the differences between it and concorde.
