Ultimate Airline Livery Challenge #6 Answers

How well did you do?

How well did you do?

Another great version of Ultimate Livery challenge. I received quite a few responses and some frustrated comments. Well, here are the answers:

#1: Alaska Airlines Boeing 737-800
#2: American Airlines DC-3
#3: Great Wall Airlines Boeing 747-400F by Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren
#4: Maylasia Airlines Airbus A380
#5: AeroSvit Airlines E-Jet
#6: Rwandair Boeing 737-800
#7: Kuwait Airways Airbus A300
#8: Shenzhen Airlines Boeing 737-800 by Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren

Those who got all of the planes and liveries correct:
* David Lilienthal
* Goron Werner
* Antonio Tantalo
* Keith Goodman 

Folks that missed only one aspect:
* Felix Estgen
* Manav Bhogal
* Andrew Arpagian
* Donald De Rosa
* Nick Bartolotta
* Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren (although two of the photos were his)

I think this one was probably a bit challenging. It seems that #3 (Great Wall Airlines) was the most difficult for people. Many also did not get #5 (guessing Gulf Air, which makes sense). #6 was another difficult one with many of you guessing Transaero for #6. Again, very close, but the lines are a bit different. Until next time…

Do you know airline and aircraft in each of these photos? Prove it!

Do you know airline and aircraft in each of these photos? Prove it!

It is that time again folks: Ultimate Airline Livery Challenge time!

For those of you who have not played before, this is how it goes down:

I show you a few 100×100 images (no, you can not see bigger versions) of airlines and it is your job to tell me #1 what airline the image belongs to and #2 what kind of airplane is it? I don’t need to know exact model, but basic (ie “Boeing 777″ vs “Boeing 777-300ER”).

DO NOT leave your answers in the comments (people can cheat that way), email me your answers to david@airlinereporter.com (do not worry, I am doing nothing with your email, but writing you back).

Those of you who get all eight airlines and aircraft correct will get a shout out on the blog (with a link to a page of your choice) and I will even mail you some AirlineReporter.com stickers if you are up for it.

I am pretty sure this one is a bit easier than others I have done previously, but I have learned that it is hard to tell until you folks start giving me feedback.

I will announce the answers sometime on Saturday the 28th. Previously, I have always given exact times, but rarely post right at that time, so I am just going with “sometime” on Saturday this time.

You are always more than welcome to leave in the comments which ones were the most difficult.

GOOD LUCK!

Alright, here are the answers for my fifth Ultimate Airline Livery Contest:

#6 Royal Air Maroc Boeing 787 Dreamliner by Jon Ostrower

#7 Pakistan International Airlines Airbus A310 by Osdu

#8 CP Air Douglas DC-8 by Jim Bavin

I had a record number of you give you best shot with guessing all the liveries and aircraft types and it is time to give some props (or jets) to those who “won” the contest and will receive AirlineReporter.com stickers:

THOSE WHO GOT ALL LIVERY AND AIRCRAFT TYPES CORRECT:
* Gordon Werner, who is ultimate champion and only person to get all five ultimate livery challenges correct
* Keith Goodman (@airplanegeekcom)
* Daniel Jones
* Paul Cavallo
* Kyle Duncan

THOSE WHO GOT ALL THE LIVERIES CORRECT:
* Tim Sieber
* Andy Wade
* Francesco Favazza
* Antonio Tantalo

If you did not win this time, do not worry. If you tried, you are really a winner in my book. I have said before that I probably couldn’t get these 100% myself, so do not feel bad. It seems that the one that people had the most trouble with was the Royal Air Maroc Boeing 787. Stay tuned for the next one!

Do you know these liveries and aircraft types?

Wow, it has been almost a year since I did my last Ultimate Airline Livery Challenge. I have been meaning to do another, but obviously I did not get around to it until now. I did try a Landing Gear Contest back in March, but I miss the livery contest.

Since my last livery challenge, I have many more new readers, so I guess I should explain a bit on what this is about.

I show you a few 100×100 images of airlines and it is your job to tell me #1 what airline the image belongs to and #2 what kind of airplane is it? I don’t need to know exact model, but basic (ie “Boeing 777″ vs “Boeing 777-300ER”).

Do not leave your answers in the comments, since others will be able to see them. Email your answers to me at david@airlinereporter.com.

Those of you who get all the liveries and airplanes correct will win some super sweet AirlineReporter.com stickers that I will send you. Plus a big shout-out (and links to a website of choice) on the answer page. The contest will end on Friday whenever I post the answers (probably in the morning, PT).

Do not stress too much. If you only know a few, that is okay, still shoot me an email. Have fun and good luck!

ANSWERS FOR THE 5TH ULTIMATE AIRLINE LIVERY CHALLENGE

Answers for the Ultimate Airline Livery Challenge #4

You think you have the livery skills to tell what airlines are in these photos?

You think you have the livery skills to tell what airlines are in these photos?

After getting so few answers on the last Ultimate Airline Livery Challenge, I was happy to see I might have made this one a little bit easier. That was “easier” and not “easy.” I was very impressed how quickly some of you got the correct answers. After getting the photos done for the first time I realized what was in the background on picture #1. It was an Inter Air Airbus A300 and realized it could give away #10, so I photoshopped the titles off. It seems like #3 got most people since Britannia flew both Boeing 767’s and 757’s, but #5 was a game changer for some as well.

So, do you like it better with other airplane parts than just wings? I had more fun making this one. Anyhow, here are the answers:

1) Air Afrique DC-10-30 (TU-TAM). Photo by Jordi Grife.
2) Sabena Boeing 737-200 (OO-SDJ). Photo by Jordi Grife.
3) Britannia Airways Boeing 767-200 (G-BRIG). Photo by 64N21W.
4) Ghana International Airlines Boeing 757-200 (G-STRZ). Photo by superspotter.
5) BWIA West Indies Airlines Airbus A340-300 (9Y-TJN). Photo by Fossie1.
6) Ukraine International Airlines Boeing 737-800 (UR-PSD). Photo by Osdu.
7) Trans World Airlines Lockheed L1011. Photo by Dean Morely.

* Matt F.
* Josué G.
* Alfred T.
* Patrick O.
* Antonio T.
* Javier A.
* Thomas B.

FOLKS WHO ALMOST GOT EVERYTHING CORRECT:
They went for the gold. Guessing both livery and aircraft type and each of these folks only got one thing off. Still very impressive.
* Ben W. Darn #3! Only got the #3 aircraft type wrong
* Rory M. #3 767 vs 757
* Mark G. #3 guessing the 757
* Gordon W. Such a rockstar with even giving reg#’s on some, but #5 got him
* Erik G. Was off on #5, but close
* Kyle D. Only off on one airline type

WINNERS WHO GOT ALL THE AIRLINES CORRECT:
* Chris J.

Okay, so maybe #3 was a little unfair. I really think the only think you could have done was to hunt down the exact photo, which can be a challenge. That’s a lot of winners, so I might have to go with some AirlineReporter.com stickers for the prizes. I am working on getting some donations for future prizes, so if you have any ideas on where to look, let me know!
