Re: Philippine Memories

Great group of Classics, DouglasDC5.

Re: And more InFlight preorder news for October

I like the World Airways livery on the 747.
The Thomas Cook A321's may be sought after now that the airline has turned "retro" itself.

Re: 77X wearing retro liveries one day?

The Gulf Air 1983 livery suits the 787 particularly well, I think. I am not that fond of their liveries after that.

Re: KLM 100 years

There were three conversion programmes between 1955 and 1967, which involved kits provided by Convair for engine updates. KLM was an early adaptor in 1955 and/or 1956.
