Finnair A319 Retro livery "Silver Bird"

Hi all!

Just imagine this metallic Silver Bird flying across the skies and reflecting the rays of IF Sun. Today I am requesting this retro livery to be added for the A319 to further expand the selection of liveries on this little bird.

OH-LVE is the only one with this specific livery in modern fleet. It operated in Finnair fleet from August 2002 to June 2012 and was painted in retro-livery from July 2008 to the day it was returned back to leasing company.

Heyo. It’s a nice livery, but like @amaryahjohnson1996 only one pic is allowed. Please follow the #features format.

Thanks for the remarks, the two other photos were now removed ;)

Didn’t know that existed, silver looks nice. One of the few times an airbus plane looks nice.

Yeah, the metallic skin would look lovely in IF. 🤩

As being one of the oldest still operating airlines Finnair will turn 100 years in 1st November 2023. Who knows this Convair Metropolitan livery will inspire also other Finnair aircrafts to be painted like OH-LVE was for the upcoming significant milestone of 100 years.

Absolutely beautiful livery, I may clear up a vote for this. But even if I don’t I still support this livery 100%, it’s absolutely stunning!

I agree, it is a one pretty livery. The livery from the 1950’s definitely beats the Euro-White liveries we see today so much :D

Think about the metallic silver skin reflecting the Sun in IF…

To keep the request buzzing I’ll be flying whole AY short haul network with the A319 and edit this table accordingly as I proceed ;)

I think this livery would bring some variety to current available A319 liveries.

Anyways - the challenge to fly all AY short haul routes with Generic A319 continues 😅.
