I would like to request one of newest liveries on a Boeing 777.
For a long time Boeing 747 was used as Presidential aircraft for Indian President and Prime Minister. These 747s belonged to Air India and were used for Civilian flights as well. There was no dedicated aircraft that could meet the requirement of VIP flight and provide security against various threats during the flight. About 3 years ago Air India received 3 of its last B77W, 1 777 registered VT-ALX was used for commercial operations of Air India while remaining 2 777s were purchased by Indian Government and transferred to Indian Air Force registered VT-ALW and VT-ALV.
About the Aircraft:
B777-300ER will be the official transport for President and Prime Minister of India. This aircraft will be operated by Indian Air Force. Pilots can be senior pilots from Air India or from Indian Air Force. Maintenance service will be provided by Air India Engineering Services Limited. These aircraft are undergoing massive security overhaul in Boeing facility and a reconfigured cabin. The aircraft features self protection suites and electronic warfare suites. With its fuel efficiency and range B777 will allow direct flights to almost any part of the world, which was not possible with a B744.
Why do we need this:
B777-300ER is one the most iconic aircraft in the world. Its used by almost every airline and government for its great past record and reliability, with B777 in rework we can add some government liveries to B77W. The livery is a classic with stripes of Indian flag colour running below the window. India written on the top in Hindi and English and State Emblem between it. The grey underbelly paint gives it a classic and retro look and Indian Air Force roundel makes it look like a military aircraft. This livery will be different from other liveries on 77W and will surely be loved by many user in Infinite Flight.
