Airlines the world over delight in showcasing attractive liveries on their aircraft which reflect their branding and sense of style to the travelling public and those on the ground. The nature of the airline industry means that the colour schemes and familiar names we are used to in our skies often change or disappear for good.
This book traces many of the schemes which were familiar across Europe, including national carriers, leisure airlines from the holiday charter boom, and regional airlines feeding our smaller airports. Many airlines in these pages have now been lost forever, and others continue in a completely revised scheme.
You’ll also see plenty of classic old airliners, such as the Caravelle, Trident, Viscount, Vanguard, Boeing 707 and Douglas DC-8.
In a country in which it is difficult for aviation enthusiasts to pursue their hobby, this book gives unprecedented access to the sights and aircraft that have visited Mumbai (formerly Bombay)’s main international airport, and the smaller (original) aerodrome at Juhu over many years.
If you’re an aviation enthusiast or photographer, this book is a perfect addition to your collection and a wonderful way to enjoy aviation in Mumbai.
