Singapore tail logo slightly modified?

Fri Nov 10, 2017 6:54 pm

Is the Singapore Airline's tail logo bird slightly redrawn to match the slant of the leading edge of the tail fin? The lines of the bird's wing always look parallel to the front edge of the efin, no matter on which aircraft it appears, including the Concorde, giving a nicely finished look, but this could just be my eyes.... What about as it appears on other surfaces?

Is the bird more upright to match the fin angle?

It's probably an optical illusion, but it does look even more apparent on the 77W.
When wasn't America great?

Yes, imho.
Which shows that a logo need not be full scale to be recognized.
In the case of modern aeroplanes however, slants don't vary much ( as compared to say a DC3 )

Same should happen to airlines whose tail motif is slanted, AF comes to mind...

If this is the case it'd have been interesting to see the livery on a de Havilland Comet!

Not sure if the concorde is a good comparison as it was a one-off paint job applied over 40 years ago. Also keeping in mind they were hand painted at the time its possible to discern minor differences between each and every logo applied in those days. The concorde logo has been horizontally compressed.

The photo of the Concorde shown has the rudder turned into the camera.
Look at the others photos on Anet and you will see it’s the same as the 747 pictured.

The 757 tail is more upright, maybe the difference is clearest there? The 747 and 777 have similar tail angles.
