First Look at the New Gulf Air Retro 787

by Matt Falcus

Gulf Air is about to take delivery of a brand new Boeing 787-9.

This particular aircraft, registration A9C-FG, is wearing a special retro livery which harks back to the colours worn by the airline in the 1980s and 90s.

It is to celebrate Gulf Air’s 70th anniversary.

Nice. Takes me back to seeing their VC10s at LHR

Always was a very nice livery, good to see it back; although not sure the ’70’ adds anything to it (although I acknowledge it’s the reason for it)

But it is not the original livery due the issues they have with Qatar. One of the stripes is a different colour so this is not a retro scheme.

An interesting Tony. Didn’t realise that!
