How well do you know airline liveries?

How well do you know airline liveries?

Wow, it has been years since I have done one of these livery challenges and that is just too long. Some of you old time readers probably remember (and either love or hate them), but I want to introduce them to some of the new readers.

The idea is quite simple. I give you some images of different airlines parts/pieces and you need to tell me, in the comments, #1 what airline does the image belong to and #2 what is the airplane type.

If you have your answers (you do not need to know them all) go ahead and post them in the comments to show your livery knowledge. Now, no cheating and looking in the comments for ideas. There are no prizes, just you know that you are an airline livery bad ass.

In a few days, I will post the answers and links to the full pictures. Good luck!

Ha! What fun. I don’t pay much attention to visuals, so I have no clue about the posted dozen, but heck yes, go for it. We’ll hope for more relevant content before the week is out. Yup, sometimes filler is necessary. In the aftermath of a huge story (MH370) when there is noting else to report, some game time is in order. I cannot name but a few of the boxes, but the pix are good. Kudos to all. -C.


David – It would be more fun if this were confidential reply for contest. I’m going with James on answers – he seems to have already nailed it!

there is no competition or prizes. just look at the pictures and type. simple as that.

Well the idea is not to look :).

I used to have everyone email me and I would go through the answers and mail stickers to the winners, but good/bad news is we have gotten so much bigger and managing it would be a challenge :).

I will look at possible other anonymous options!
