What color will American Airlines Paint its 787s
Since an airplane’s skin (the covering of the fuselage, wings, etc.) is aluminum, it’s usually polished and unpainted. However, the Boeing 787 is a new-design airplane will have a composite skin, one that doesn't take too well to shiny polishing. So what color will American paint the airplanes?
Would you guess blue? ( … and especially if you read the December 1 blog about car colors ...)
Guess again. The CFO said that American is considering painting them burnt orange. (Did he mean International Safety Orange?)
