Interestingly enough, there was a Tu-114 in JAL service for a bit. It's certainly a bit unfamiliar to see a Soviet plane in some non-Soviet Bloc markings.


It still was an Aeroflot aircraft, after all. JAL was forced to use Aeroflot aircraft as carriers for their flights into the Soviet Union, there were other airlines that had to follow a similar scheme, e .g. KLM, IIRC.

KLM used to fly joint ops with VIASA I think, with the aircraft painted in different schemes on each side. Sadly I can't find a pic of it anywhere.  :banghead:

The most famous aircraft like that must surely have been the BA Concorde G-BOAD, which was painted in BA on one side and Singapore Airlines on the other. I liked it so much I made a model of it.  ;D





It would have been even better if they'd re-done the BA side in the Landor scheme, and I might Whiff that one day too.
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

Obviously, Airliners.net hates hot-linking (unless its already in your cache), so I moved a copy into my Imgur file:

Drat! I was hoping it would be in the glorious two-tone blue stuff.  :angry: ;D

It could be, all you have to do is build it.  ;D

Huh!! That's a great idea... I bet a KLM multi-blue-62 would look fantastic.   :wub:    I've 3-4 of the things floating around, too. 2 or 3 Zvesda ones and one ICM one.  :wacko:

The Ukrainian fan club struck again - someone has found my MiG 7.12. Even though I have the impression, that reading more than just a (fake) headline might be helpful in order to interpret the pictures:

Found another evolution of one of my builds - apparently, a model (an updated post-WWII F6F) inspired a flight simulator fan:

At least he gives you credit (by attaching the link, if not in words). :thumbsup:
