Isn't that a bit on the flamboyant side for a "Government Transport"? I mean, this isn't Austin Powers!!

That's ironic, coming from an American!

Whilst I wouldn't want to detract from what is a good quality picture, the subject matter is a massive waste of public funds at a time when the National Health Service is woefully underfunded. Funny how there was 'no magic money tree' when it came to giving nurses a pay rise, yet they can find nearly a million quid to paint a plane ... disgusting!

So, you would rather that after heavy maintenance where the pain is stripped for fuselage inspection that they don't repaint them?
Why not just sell off all the RAF craft, that will not only save money, but make money too.

It's so obviously a Boris vanity project it makes me sick. But it is a great photo, just wish the subject matter wasn't so odious.

The plain grey would've surely been a darn sight cheaper than what they've ended up with, and that's if it even was stripped during heavy maintenance. Regardless of the reality, the perception is it's an ill timed waste of taxpayers money. I agree with lollyj, a blatant vanity project

At least Boris didn't spend 1.3 billion on three brand new A350's like the German government has. She was in for heavy maintenance and a new paint job. We are one of the only countries that didn't have a designated aircraft for the PM and the Royal Family. The funds for this aircraft would have been budgeted way before Covid-19 showed up! Be proud of your flag.

So many whiners in the UK. Should make it a national pastime.

I like the livery! I do feel however that Mark Kwiatkowski's photo (which was on here first) should have been used on the banner news, as this photo seems slightly overexposed. Personal opinion of course.
