Phil, nice stuff mate!

I think its about time BMI updated A320 G-MIDX...apart from the fact its faded to buggery, Varig is no longer a member, and the other week was the 6th anniversary of the MURDER of Ansett

Thanks mate. Sure, I think these A320 are going though, G-MIDU was ferried to SEN for re-spray into Spannair colours. Such a shame about Ansett R.I.P. cray.gif

Air New Zealand and the Australian Transport minister at the time (his wife was on QF bird) certainly did no favours! They not only murdered Ansett, but they killed my life long dream (I was 14 at the time) to fly for Ansett as a career. And to think many thought Jetstar was an overnight idea, any coincidence between Lindsay Fox pulling out of the Ansett deal and Jetstar picking Avalon just a couple of years later??? Anyhoo, thats another story, not worth entering into...

Dreadful livery. They should do away with the Red window frame and have a bigger cheat line. The coporate logo should be extended like the new QF one.
