While the press release from ATR boasts of its first delivery of an ATR 72-600 to Air New Zealand, we're pretty sure the accompanying photograph shows the turboprop - complete with distinctive All Black livery - flying over ATR's home city of Toulouse. The delivery is the first from a 2011 order of seven 68-seaters, with a further five aircraft on option. Deliveries will be completed during 2016. The pictured aircraft will enter service in November, with ANZ subsidiary Mount Cook Airlines.
To celebrate the 2012 London Olympic Games and being the Official Air Travel Partner and Carrier What's Really Quite British and Everything. BA has produced this gold-festooned Airbus. No, we don't know why they've done a dove either (and it took us some time to work out they were feathers down the side, not the results of a particularly choppy flight). Anyway, enjoy the images.Credit: Geoffrey Lee/BA
Jackie Chan's executive jet has arrived in Singapore, the first Legacy 650 to be displayed at the Singapore Airshow.
Unfortunately Jackie isn't present, but the aircraft, which has a distinctive 'Dragon' livery, will certainly pull in the crowds during the show.

Replete with dragon motif - to celebrate the Chinese Year of the Dragon - this Airbus A320, the carrier's 100th (registration - we think - 9M-AQM, although that's listed in our database as a 1972-vintage Boeing 737-200 that was parked in 2008) arrived in AirAsia's fleet earlier this week. According to the press bumf, it took a team of 1,000s of painters, a billion hours to complete it (although to be honest, I might have skimmed that bit).
To borrow from Spinal Tap: How much more black could it be? None more black. It's Air New Zealand's latest Boeing 777-300ER (ZK-OKQ) resplendent in the All Black colour scheme sat next to a Beech 1900D turboprop belonging to Eagle Airways at Auckland. Could it be any more awesome? None more awesome.Credit: Peter Clark
I've been looking for pictures of this Hello Kitty-themed Airbus A330-300 for a few weeks now and I can see it repelling as many as it draws in. Anyway, thank you to Taiwan's EVA Air for doing this, it's made the world a more day-glo place.
No cats were harmed during its production. Probably.
The words "Airbus ACJ" will now precede the model of the airliner from which each corporate jet is derived, with the A318 Elite becoming the Airbus ACJ318; the A319 Corporate becoming the Airbus ACJ319; the A320 Prestige becoming the Airbus ACJ320 and so on throughout the family, including the forthcoming Airbus ACJ350 widebody.
The new colours comprise metallic-blue shading on most of the
fuselage and tail, highlighted by flowing curves "that echo the colour
schemes often chosen by Airbus corporate jet customers", and are
accompanied by a new "Airbus Corporate Jets" logo, said Airbus. Read more...
The livery was announced last June, a few months before the carrier revealed its intention to join the SkyTeam alliance, which it expects to formalise next year.
