Remember a few weeks ago when I posted the photos above and asked for you to guess the airline and aircraft type? Well, it is time for the answers. If you haven’t guessed already, feel free to head back to the original story and do your best, and then when you are ready, keep reading and I have the answers below.
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!
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 [email protected] (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.
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 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!
