Democracy comes to China’s air force

Since I apparently now have a voice in PLAAF decision-making, I’m voting for the red-and-black scheme with the Michael Jackson “Beat It” vibe. 

From China Defence Blog today:


Say No To White Rabbit

Due to pubic outcry over the ugly “white rabbit” paint scheme (here) , the PLAAF “August First” flight demonstration team recently released four new sample color schemes for people to choose from. Cast your vote here http://mil.news.sina.com.cn/nz/j10tuzhuang/index.shtml

Remember, vote early and vote often

    Since they are the next imperial power in the Pacific Rim, they ought to honour their predecessors by using the Blue Angels’ blue-and-gold scheme.

    The new schemes definitely look nice compared to the original “white rabbit” [candy], but they probably won’t stand out that well in the air or on tarmac.

    Primary colors are used for flight demo team livery precisely for that purpose, i reckon: easily identifiable for prominence, for promotion. They can still look very sharp in the original or other primary colors, imo.

    I agree with Stephen – go the red and black! Just like my local football team: the Bombers… http://www.essendonfc.com.au/
