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!

How many airlines were you able to guess?

How many airlines were you able to guess?

A while back, we put out some screen shots of some airline smart phone apps and wanted to see if you could track down which airlines they belonged to. Quite of few of you made some great guesses. Here are the answers:

1) Air France 2) American Airlines 3) Delta Air Lines 4) Jetblue 5) Alaska Airlines 6) British Airways 7) interjet 8) Aeromexico 9) Qatar Airways 10) United Airlines 11) Southwest Airlines 12) Lufthansa Airlines 13) Singapore Airlines 14) Cathay Pacific 15) Air New Zealand

Here are the uber winners of the contest who got every single app correct:

  • Natasha A
  • Rizwan A
  • Manav Bhogal
  • Kachun L
  • Scott P
  • Tristan P
  • Keith G

All those above will be mailed the new #AvGeek sticker from (get your own here).

It seems the Alaska Airline’s app was one of the most mis-leading with having a four engine aircraft on their app (they only fly the two-engine Boeing 737). How well did you do?

Most airlines have smart phone apps right about now. Recently Jason Rabinowitz was looking through his and found some of the layouts… well interesting. Some match an airline’s brand, but others not so much. We decided to see if you can ID which app belongs to which airline.

This is not a huge contest and the winners will get shoutouts and some stickers. Email your results (do not leave them in the comments) to da***@ai*************.com — it is okay even if you do not get them all. You have until next Friday, when we will give you the answers.

You can leave questions, comments, frustrations in the comments. Game on.

Can you tell which aircraft and airlines these winglets belong to?

Can you tell which aircraft and airlines these winglets belong to?

It seems like this was a challenging contest. A few days ago I posted this photo and asked you to identify the airline and type of aircraft. I wasn’t sure how hard it might be. Turns out that no one got every answer correct.

Here are the official answers (click on the link to see the full photo):

#1 FedEx Airbus A300
#2 Hawaiian Airlines Boeing 767
#3 Zero G Boeing 727
#4 Singapore Airlines Airbus A380
#5 Martinair MD-11
#6 Aeroflot Airbus A330
#7 US Airways, PSA Livery Airbus A319
#8 United (or Continental) Airlines Boeing 757
#9 Air Canada Embraer E-190
#10 JAZZ Bombardier CRJ200

All images were taken by Jeremy Dwyer-Lindgren.

The sixth one, the Aeroflot Airbus A330, turned out to be the biggest challenge for most people. I probably blurred the registration number under the wing too much, which helps to ID it as Aeroflot’s. Do not feel bad, out of all the guesses only two people got it right.

I really though #3 was going to be the most difficult, but many of you got that one right.

Since #1 and #6 were hard to actually ID the actual airline and no one got every answer correct, I am going to give shout outs to those few who got all by one aspect correct:
*Anthony H
* Arthur L
*  Jeremy D-L (although he took all these photos, so does that count?)
* Scott W
*  Keith G
* Andy W
* Cary L
* Brandon F

Thank you to everyone who participated. Doing these contests I am always beyond impressed with how well so many people do. I do not think I would have been able to get everyone of these correct. Please feel free to share and tips and hints on how you ID’d these photos correctly in the comments.

Can you tell which aircraft and airlines these winglets belong to?

Can you tell which aircraft and airlines these winglets belong to?

On the blog, I have done five Ultimate Livery Challenges and even one Landing Gear Contest. I decided to do something a bit different — an Ultimate Winglet Challenge. I have to admit that this one is probably the hardest on my end. Many winglets are just a plain color and many airlines look a like. The point was to try and find winglets that you might have a chance to identify the aircraft type and the airline, without being too easy, nor impossible.

Yes, I had to blur a few identifying numbers and words — sue me (actually don’t please). You uber AvGeeks might also notice which winglets that I flipped horizontally because of the nav lights. I just want to let you know that I know that you know.

No prizes on this one (other than getting an epic shout-out and link to site of your choice on the answer blog). For those of you who have not played before… here is the deal: take a look at these winglets, figure out what KIND OF PLANE AND WHAT AIRLINE THESE WINGLETS BELONG TO and then email your answers to da***@ai*************.com (no, I am not signing you up for any spam). Even if you do not know all 10, make your best guess anyhow. Please do not leave any answers in the comments (I will have to delete them), but questions are always welcome.

I will keep the contest open until Sunday the 8th until about 5pm (give or take). Give it your best shot and good luck!
