East-West Airlines (Australia) Boeing 727

East-West Airlines was an Australian regional and domestic airline (the third largest in Australia), founded in 1947. It was owned by Compass Airlines during the 90’s (you can see the similarities in the liveries) and was taken over by Ansett Australia in 1993.

I would love to see more Australian liverys

I still like the Compass livery on the A300 better than this, though this one is still nice.

(I don’t see TAA on the tail like the other Aussie livery)🀣

This one was also operated by Ansett. TAA didn’t operate the 727.
