  1. Don’t forget the World Cup world tour livery on a Titan Airways Airbus

  2. Flydubai’s Argentina Soccer team livery from last week!

  3. Hey, the 5 jerseys in Gol’s livery refer to the 5 times Brazil won World Cups, that’s why they’re numbered 58, 62, 70, 94 and 02 (the years when Brazil won).

  4. Hello from Parrsboro I began my love for flying when I was 7 and then began with rc aircraft and when I turned 15 I began real flying with a friend Allan Farrell who was a captain with Air Canada. He taught me to fly his 1957 cessena 170 tail dragger. At 16 I began flying Cherokee 140 piper at debert Airport near Truro Nova Scotia. After 4 hour’s of dual with Don Roger’s I was flying solo. I only acquired my private license as my education and hockey career were a bigger importance and influence. Today I enjoy rc aircraft flying and on the occasion fly with a friend here in his kit single engine plane. I enjoy the flight radar 24 and I am looking forward to listening to your podcast !

  5. How much does it cost an airline to design and execute a repaint like these? Presumably there can be licences involved, like depicting the trophy itself on the Titan A320. That’s great if you can get Coca Cola to pay for it! But how much does it set back the other carriers, without that kind of sponsorship? How often is a repaint actually required in the life of a plane?
