It's not Singapore Airlines 50th Anniversary. It's to Celebrate Singapore's 50th Birthday. Lol

I was a big fan of the old 50th livery, but I think this one looks silly and messy. I can't tell if the a380 just can't pull it off or if the scheme is faulted. Still, I am sure JC will make this as it is a must have for many Singapore collectors.

Thought this was kind of blah. Not as elegant as the 50th Anniversary, nor as imaginative as the Tropical...the F1 was a disappointment as it looked like they took a page out of Emirates handbook by just slapping the logo on it. This is just....blah.

Same thoughts......in fact quite disappointed with the livery....too plain....doesnt stands out like tropical, nalanji or Wunala level of complexity...

if that's the final version that has to be the ugliest special colour on a widebody aircraft in the last decade... Just horrible and could have been so much better.

If Tonka is right it would be interesting to see it finished, but as it stands it does nothing for i'm afraid!

It certainly looks unfinished, but then again so do 90% of the normal airline liveries in service.

Hmmm, A380 not to my taste, but I would take a JAL Skycruiser 747-400 such as the one in the background of the Kai Tak picture above of 9V-SMZ! With the mental release list of 747s these days, I suspect this won't be too far away.

Yep! Could not agree more! At least this one looks like it took more than a matter of seconds to conceive, unlike current: JAL, China Eastern, Finnair, American, Iberia...

it's not just a matter of being simple or complex. i think mas' blue ribbon livery on their a380 is simple but elegant. but then again, i may be biased as i'm a closet fan of malaysia

let's hope this is an incomplete livery... and with the existing colours, they should call it the sia sunrise (yeah, i know that they're more of sunset colours but well... sunset just doesn't seem quite right in context).
