The best Virgin livery in my opinion. Like the font and the red engines.

Re: PT-TAA 1/400 scale Customs.

Here's an Iran Air DC-3, registered EP-ADG, 1962 colors. I found little info of the real machine: she was built in 1943 as a C-47A-60-DL, would have been great to know where she served during WW II. She was damaged beyond repair at Shiraz airport in June 1971. I already made this one in 1/500 scale last year, so I just copy and paste the text!

Re: PT-TAA 1/400 scale Customs.

Here's an Airtours DC-10-30, registered G-BYDA, 1995 colors. She was delivered new to Singapore Airlines on October 1978, registered 9V-SDA. She was then taken by Wardair Canada on October 1981, as C-GFHX, named "Sir Stan McMillan", then to Canadian Airlines International on May 1988; To Minerve on April 1989 (F-GGMZ), then to AOM French Airlines on March 1992. To TAESA, registered XA-SYE and immediatelly leased to Dominicana on June 1995, back to TAESA on July 1996. She then went to Premiair on April 1997, as OY-CNO, to Airtours on April 1998, re-registered G-BYDA on March 1999. Finally, to MyTravel on February 2002, as her last operator; after she left the fleet she was stored at EGBP on May 2005, being broken up there on July same year. She had the distinction of being the last UK registered DC-10 to fly. The model of her in My Travel dress was already published here few months ago.
