OMG gorgeous and I'm usually the last here to care about a livery.

I love how the latest aircraft has a retro livery. A cool old school hipster. :bouncy:

Good to see them keeping the TCA retro scheme, with the 319s apparently all heading out.

It feels right seeing that livery on a Canadian-made plane. I can't wait to see more pictures!

Meh. We've had that retro livery before. We need the 1970s scheme with the black cockpit anti-glare panel:

I wouldn't call the TCA livery on the A223 " Meh ", on the contrary, I think it looks way better than it did on the A319. I will agree that the 1970's scheme might also look good, just trying to visualize what it would look like on a A223. I'm not a fan of the black cockpit anti-glare on the current livery, just doesn't strike me as aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

The blue on the inlet cowl is just masking I assume? Fingers crossed that it isn't.

Beautiful plane and livery. But what is it about those liveries that screams "Previous Century"? Cheat lines, font, colors?

Agreed - I saw the thread headline and this was the livery I was hoping for!

I was too! I was somewhat disappointed to see what it was, since we've already had that retro scheme.

Did TCA and BOAC at one time share the speedbird symbol? Nice to see it in the sky again!

That does look really nice. Agreed on the thoughts around a red/white A220 retrojet...that would be amazing.

I noticed the Speedbird too, and looked up in Wikepedia (yes, I know...) but didn't find any mention about a TCA-BOAC link in the pages for either airline. Anybody know?

IMO that's less the livery and more that the a319 is generally not an attractive aircraft. Short and fat like many shrinks are.

I would perhaps guess that it was a nod to Canada being in the British Empire at the time. It didn't carry over to the re-branding as Air Canada in 1965.

Its hard to make the A220 look bad, but that gray is a gorgeous color.
