Re: The SPEYER B747-200 LUFTHANSA

Not only climbing the stairs - getting up the inner cabin towards the flight deck can be challenging too! Climbing them up is like making a steep approach with some carousel riding.

Re: Pictures of the Gemini jets BCAL A310

What is “orange”? It’s yellow with a higher portion of red. Check out the color code for the B’Cal livery and guess what...?! It’s a slightly “darker yellow”

Re: Pictures of the Gemini jets BCAL A310

With all due respect to anyone defending Gemini with his/her life... gold is NOT orange, my friend. If you don’t suffer from color ametropia, that comment of yours is a pointless.

Re: Look Who I Met Today

Just as a sidenote, Gold Leader, Dimitri Antonov is not the founder of the company. Founder Oleg Antonov died away in the mid-1980s already when the Cold War was on its final high.

Re: Pictures of the Gemini jets BCAL A310

Good point. Another “problem” that is hard to understand. And it’s rather leading to another question: do they use specs anyway?

Re: Pictures of the Gemini jets BCAL A310

... and Pantone 124 is a shade of YELLOW (with a high portion of red, i.e. it is ORANGE). Therefore, it appears quite ridiculous that GJ is continually talking about „gold“ in its statement.

Well, at least the A319 had a better (albeit still wrong) silver basic colour than the A220's dark grey. None of them looks like the bare metal TCA original, though.
