Way back in April 2010, I had this crazy idea to put snippets of airliner pictures out there,  asking you to guess the livery. Then I got a bit more creative with showing different parts, angles, designs etc.  Then I totally just stopped. I am not fully sure why. Maybe because I was getting jealous that many of you knew liveries way better than I did, or the fact that this setup actually takes quite a bit longer to get published as a story than one might think. No matter the reason… IT’S BACK!!!

Take a good look at the photos below and see below to learn how the game works. Hey, if you guess enough, maybe I will mail you a few sweet AirlineReporter stickers!

Rules are easy. In the comments, list the airline AND/OR aircraft type for each photo. Some are easy. Some might be nearly impossible. If you only know a few, that is okay, leave your answers in the comments. The big thing is no cheating, such as Google image search or looking at other people’s comments before you make your guess (often people are wrong anyhow).

Don’t feel bad if you only know a few (or even one). I think if I wasn’t the one making this, I would get half at best (okay, maybe only 25%). Then next week, I will share the full photos and see who won! And by win, if you had fun, I will send you some stickers! Good luck!
