Do you know these liveries and aircraft types?

Do you know these liveries and aircraft types?

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

#1 Air Canada Boeing 747-100 by Bob Garrard

#2 TWA Lockheed L1011 by Dean Morley

#3 Cubana IL-62M by Chris Chen

#4 Avior Airlines Boeing 737-200 by Aero Icarus

#5 Aero California DC-9-15 by Ron Monroe

#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 stickers:

* 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

* 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!

I got thrown off on #7 because the tail is similarly painted to those of the Garden of the Mughals livery on a 747 and 777, both of which seemed wrong. Nice job with the choices!

Royal Air Maroc was the only one I got right!!

Hey David Parker Brown,
Along the same lines,, My first choice for air travel in Africa is with Ethiopian Airlines. I’ve had the good fortune to work a lot with the airline and experience their service firsthand. The company has a long history that started with TWA. They have continued to be on the leading edge management, performance, service and fleet modernization since. They are one of the first to order the Boeing 787 “Dreamliner” and the airport at ADD is the most modern and well-managed in Africa taking it’s design from Atlanta’s Hartsfield. What this means to the traveler is safe, courteous, comfortable service with efficient baggage transfer and on-time performance to meet connections. With an extensive worldwide network this also means connections throughout Africa, Europe and Middle East. ET has flights from IAD to FCO (Washington to Rome) en route to Addis Ababa and this can oftentimes be a less expensive than European and U.S. carriers to get to the continent.
Keep up the good work
