Recommended Posts

Not sure where to post it,as i found out this photo on '1:200 Scale Model' section on DAC.

The livery was based on SAS retro,but slight changes had been made on the front (Thai barge instead of Viking boat)

 

The rego was previously used by a DC-8 (former rego:SE-DBC):

Simon:Yes it is;because TG is a joint venture between SAS and Thai Airways Company (Thailand domestic Carrier).But a minor retouch was made on the front of the livery (The SAS Viking boat was replaced with Thai barge).

 

Here's some info i've got from TG website:

 

Thai Airways International was founded in 1960 as a joint venture between Thailand's domestic carrier, Thai Airways Company (TAC) and Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) with the Scandinavian carrier initially providing a 30% share capital of two million Baht. SAS also provided operations, managerial and marketing expertise, with training assistance aiming at building a fully independent national airline within the shortest possible time. Thai nationals, through training and experience, were gradually able to assume full managerial responsibility and the number of expatriate staff duly reduced until, in 1987, expatriates accounted for less than one percent of staff based in Thailand.

 

On April 1, 1977, after a 17 - year capital participation partnership with SAS, the Thai Government bought out SAS remaining 15 % holding and THAI became fully owned by the Thai people.

If only SAS do one which also would be better

 

SAS operates a retro aircraft, as per below:

Most EU airlines have one, like LH, KL, AF, RO, IB, OS to name a few...

 

(would love to see AZ in a retro btw)

 

I love the TG retro colours, on this 747 !!! :yahoo:

 

OT: what is the rego of the wfu A300 ? :huh:

Yup, MH should do a retro color and PHX should release the model. :p

Agreed;not just MH,but SQ as well!

 

I have been dreaming of this idea too. Would be great if both airlines could repaint the same aircraft type - either the 777-200 or A330-300 - or both types!

;)

That's mean TG is one of the oldest airline in SE Asia after PR (1941), MH/SQ (1947),GA (1949) and VN (1956).
