American Airlines just released their new livery - the first new look since 1968! Here's an excerpt from USA Today:

American says it had to come up with a new "livery" for its plane exteriors as it begins to take delivery of recently ordered new-age jets that include composite materials — materials that cannot be polished as the airline's existing aluminum fuselages are.

"Since the polished metal look was no longer an option, the importance of the paint selection became critical to honoring American's silver bird legacy," American says in a release highlighting its new look. "Silver mica paint was chosen as a way to maintain the silver heritage which American's people and customers are passionate about, yet progress ahead with a clean new look."

What do you think of the new paint scheme?

The 787 "Dreamliner" relies more than any other modern airliner on electrical signals to help power nearly everything the plane does. It's also the first Boeing plane to use rechargeable lithium ion batteries, which charge faster and can be molded to space-saving shapes compared to other airplane batteries. The plane is made with lightweight composite materials instead of aluminum. Read more here: http://apne.ws/UaKSfP

Many thanks to all of the Women who've made great contributions to aviation since we first took to the skies, and also to those who continue to do so.

Pretty sure I'm missing something here - an attempt at irony perhaps? Rouge mean Red, and last time I checked Red means Stop. Oh well.. Here's the official livery for Air Canada's new discount/leisure airline. Your thoughts?
