Here's something you Aircraft modellers may wish to model !!

 

She looks great in her sponsorship livery if not a little wavey like the new 206 livery. I don't model modern aircraft nor modern railways. :)

 

An A320 in my eyes is a bit like a 22k ICR or a container flat. Give me an AT6, P51D or B141 any day!

It's an A-320 - it says it just above the registration, behind the back door.

Hi Paul. That photo was taken in the last few years. 'Aer Friendly' repainted a few aircraft in various retro liveries from the past. Noel

 

PS: BucketAndSlopAir have done a few interesting livery tweaks over the years for promotional purposes.

It's a nice livery, represents Ireland well, although I think they needed to do something with the 'snooty nose' on the livery.

 

I think the retro livery fits the A320 very well. It's a superb aircraft. Comparing it to the 22k is a little like comparing the superbly engineered 141 class to the old Lima 201s. This little baby is the original 5-pole double flywheel all wheel pickup version of FBW aircraft!

Hi Kevin. I was more referring to old v new, as in old piston engined or old turbo prop aircraft v modern sleek jet aircraft (i.e. like steam, 121, 141 v 201s and sleek ICRs). The old tended to have more visual character. Agree the 320 is a superb operational tool. At least it has comfy seats unlike the 22k. :) Noel

Wouldn't fancy heading off on the hols in an AT6 or a P51D. Luggage space might be a bit tight!!:ROFL:

But which would you prefer to fly? :) An office on autopilot, or a joystick connected to every molecule of air?

We had an operational P51 from the flight museam crash into the Gulf last year with pilot and passenger both lost..... stick with the A320. Actually these are real aircraft but their abilities are rarely seen except maybe on testing or an occasional airshow. Not sure if the the A320 can 'loop the loop' but Concorde certainly could
