Uzbekistan Airways is the national airline of Uzbekistan and started operations on May 31, 1992 after taking over service of Aeroflot’s service in the region. The carrier has a mixed fleet of aircraft including the Airbus A310, Airbus A320, Antonov-24, Avro RJ85, Boeing 757-200, Boeing 767-300ER, Ilyushin Il-114 and the Yak-40. The airline also has orders for two Boeing 787 Dreamliners.

This is one livery that surely stands out. Normally Boeing 767s at Paine Field do not stand out amount the 747s and 787s, but the Uzbekistan livery forces one to take notice. The first time I saw it, I was a bit shocked, but now it has started to grow a bit on me.

So why would an airline paint their aircraft to be light blue up top, white in the middle and green on the bottom with red lines seperating them? Well, take a look at the Uzbekistan flag and you get a pretty good idea of their thought process.

I get the whole color thing…but I still think it’s awful.

Some may not like the colors, and I’m not sure I do, but it sure beats teh heck out of the basic Euro-white color scheme.

The livery is based on the colors of Uzbek flag(blue-red-white-red-green)…
