Did BA consider a blue belly for Negus/Landor liveries on Concorde?

Mon Jan 10, 2022 10:37 pm

Hello, asking because this link on british airways liveries history seem to say they at least considered it but decided not to do it because the blue paint was problematic (why?). link to the liveries https://www.yesterdaysairlines.com/ba-l ... -2015.html
Thanks for your answers!

The Concorde generated quite a lot of heat given the speeds it was flying, so darker colors wouldn't help here.

Concorde livery must be predominantly white to avoid the heat issues

As stated, had to be white, here's the heating for a typical supersonic cycle;

In 1996, AF allowed Pepsi to use one of theirs for marketing, the livery restricted that aircraft to Mach 1.7, with also time limits at supersonic speeds.
