A paint hangar malfunction left this aircraft parked outside without the green spraylat covering. This is what a 747-8 looks like uncovered. For Air China.

I really like this look, as I also liked the previous AA c/s a lot, especially the then OneWorld logojets, they were real silver bullets. But mostly this jumbo reminds me of the 747-400 prototype.

As much as I love a shiny bird and the seemingly "boring" Air China livery, saw the existing 744 Air China transport land in HNL one day and there was something about it that was just exquisite in its simplicity. Not a great livery in photography, but in person I am sure it will look stunning!

Beautiful plane that seems belong to any country, where people love airplanes, flying and the power of the man in the sky. I'd enjoy see she in flight, with no colors, looking the Sun light shinning all on!!

I've always wanted to see a bare polished metal 747-8I. This aircraft doesn't need to be pained at all. Too bad American Airlines didn't order these an keep their classic bare polished metal with cheatline.

Actually.... Not only did American Airlines revert back to the old paint scheme, but also they ordered 747-8s as well. Just wishful thinking here.

Now that's what we call "Silver Bullet" remind me of Cathay Cargo 743 Silver Bullet. Good old Times! but with a new variant, the mighty 748!
