Tracking special aircraft, especially those with unique liveries, is a great way to use Flightradar24. In a previous post, we showed how to track special airline alliance liveries. In this post, we take a look at retro liveries showcasing airline history. Some airlines even have multiple aircraft painted to honor their history, including American Airlines’ “Heritage Jets” and Qantas’ RetroRoo and the new Retro Roo II.
