Air Canada's "Sparkling Silver" B762 makes an appearance in Hawaii and is seen taxiing out to runway 08R as AC44. Yep, finally caught this bird, and she sure is giving off a nice reflection of her wing, but she still can't compare with JAL's silver B744F. Seems like the rear end of the fuselage is getting pretty dull and scratched up, while the maple leaf decal on the tail is peeling. This is Air Canada's new approach in saving money due to the soaring fuel costs.

Great shot, the reflexion is simply amazing! AC is only going with this scheme on its 762 fleet in order to save fuel.

Great shot, you captured all the dirt as well. There's saving money and there's also maintaining an image......AC may want to talk to AA. It is possible to have bare metal and look good at the same time.

Great photo! Air Canada has made a smart move. Now they just need to take some lessons from AA on polished aluminum maintenance.
