Back in September I shared a special livery contest that All Nippon Airways (ANA) was holding for people to design a special livery to celebrate their 60th birthday. Shockingly, my design was not chosen.

After 7042 designs were submitted, the airline chose their top ten choices, where fans could vote on their favorite. The votes were tallied and the winning design was one from the 19 and over group seen on a 767-300 model above. The design was changed a little bit from the original design to make sure it would work on an actual aircraft (notice the bird and flower swapped). Anyone else have “it’s a small world,” playing in their head right now?

The new design is expected to join the fleet in February 2013.

Pretty cool design. Looks better now that it’s on a model.
Look forward to it coming out.

I did have “it’s a small world” going through my head – but in a good way: I find that a very befitting message for an airline, and a cheerful one, too.
