Logo Or Theme Planes You'd Like

Wed May 16, 2001 11:00 pm

This is not to contradict myself with my usual bashing of you folks that make the arcane "I think a JetBlue A340 would look cool".

No, this is something different.

What would be a "Theme" or "Logojet" you'd like to see, on an existing (or past) airline, using an existing aircraft type? What would it look like?

The one fantasy logojet I would've liked to see was of course, on the "king" of logojet airlines, namely Western Pacific.

I would've loved to see a "Coca-Cola" logojet.
Of course, it would've been one of their 737-300's.

Picture this:

A fuselage painted in the deep crimson red that is Coke's trademark. The WP logo would've been painted in white, on the front door as usual. Then, in huge white letters on the side, would've been the classic scripted "Coca Cola" letters painted in white. And then, the Coke bottle logo would've been painted on the tail.

It would've looked sharp.

I know that Tom In NO is salivating for a "Louisiana One" from Southwest. It would have a giant crayfish (crawdad) painted on the fuselage, and the engines would have the claws.

I too would love to see that.

What would you like or liked to see

I can't think of any company to sponsor this, but a jet with orange and black tiger stripes would be pretty cool.

JAL with huge World Cup 2002 logo on the side, a bit like what Ansett did with their B744's and the Australian olympics 2000.

BA all the way!

Matt D: Do you really like logojets? I'm not trying to bash you, but I find the whole flying billboard concept cheap and tacky. Isn't that what blimps are for?

MLS515--- Your plane could be an Exxon logojet, Exxon's old advertising slogan was "Put a tiger in your tank."

How bout logojets for new movies... Now I want a "Planet of the Apes" logojet, have scenes from the movie across the side of the plane and in big letters the words, "DAMN DIRTY APE!!!"

Just to compete with Matt's Coca-Cola jet we'd need to have a Pepsi jet, which would mean a RC Cola jet, and then a 7up Uncola jet.

I'd love to see Delta put some more aircraft in Cartoon Network paintjobs like the Delta Express Powderpuff Girls aircraft. How about a Johnny Bravo CRJ, or a Dexter's Laboratory 767 or a Flintstones 757? How about a Guinness plane (maybe black and tan  Smile ) or for the Geordies, a Newcastle Brown Ale? With all the sport team painted planes around, where could one stop?

A "Sports Illustrated" Swimsuit models aircraft. Perhaps the model's face is on the tail (like Alaska Air) and her long legs stretch down the along the windows. Tastefully done, mind you.

Guaranteed TV exposure and lots bickering by whomever can't handle it.

What about a UA 772 in sixties United's color scheme ?
A CO 767 with the Golden Tail ?
A Qantas 744 with the old V-Jet scheme ?
A Delta 772 in seventies Pan Am color sheme ?

Or for a logojet :
A 772 in Ford color sheme  Smile
Maybe a Airliners.Net A340 ?  Smile

How 'bout a Budweiser logojet.

You got a few different options. It could be like Western's final livery with the bare metal and red titles. Or it could be all white with the Budweiser script and the frogs, feret, and the other two animals.

And when the plane will be broken up, they don't ever need to repaint the plane, fill it with Bud and you have your "Big" can  Smile

I always wanted to see a Flying Tigers in a tiger stripe livery, that would have been cool.

I'd like to see Qantas do a central Australian theme plane with Uluru (Ayers Rock) as the feature.

I'd like to see an all white aircraft with the words
"Don't look at me, I'm naked" written down the side.
I so want to fly on SCAT one day!

How about a Rootsair "Thorazine" theme plane? Guess now it would have to be Skyservice.

Virgin Blue in Australia have consider a large mobile phone on the side of their aircraft to advertise Virgin mobile here in Australia.
The best theme liveries I have seen is the QANTAS 747 Grand prix, and Southwests Shamu. The Ayers Rock theme sounds like a good idea.

I think an America West 757-200 painted in the colors of the Columbus Blue Jackets would be an excellent addition to their fleet of theme aircraft.

The aircraft would be painted in deep blue for the lower fuselage, and then white for the upper section starting at the windowline. The tail would also be a deep royal blue with the logo of the Blue Jackets. On the forward fuselage behind the cockpit windows would be a picture of "Stinger," the Blue Jackets' mascot. Going along behind Stinger along the windows of the first class section would be 3 waving red sashes.

A Reno Air 737NG, if anyone has seen the color scheme of Aero Union, a airtanker servic, I would love to see a fleet of airliners painted like that, 737's, L1011, B744's, B757's, etc.
