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

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…
