    Great link! Thanks for sharing. Seeing an all black heavy like the 773 would be quite ominous and intimidating.

    They claim that the blank livery doesn't cause the aircraft to heat up more. I wonder why. If I recall correctly, US ditched their dark livery after the merger with America West because it wasn't a good fit for the hotter climates in PHX and LAS. Does NZ have some sort of miracle paint?

    they stated it was chrome free paint. Not sure if that would have changed the heating properties of the paint.
