The Days of Classic European Liveries and Lost Airlines

by Matt Falcus

Lost Airline Colours of Europe

If you’re a fan of aviation as it used to be, we could have the book for you!

The days of classic European colour schemes live on in Lost Airline Colours of Europe, a new photographic history book title in the Timelines series from Destinworld Publishing.

Written by Matt Falcus, author of Airport Spotting Blog, it draws on a large collection of wonderful colour photographs of how airlines used to look, particularly from the 1960s to 90s.


As the name suggests, the book focuses on European airlines, including national carriers, leisure and low-cost airlines, regional airlines and cargo airlines.

Many of the airlines featured are now consigned to the history books, whilst others are still with us today but look very different. In some cases we even include a variety of former liveries worn by an airline.


Then there are the aircraft. Inevitably, when you’re looking at pictures from 20 to 50 years ago, the aircraft types will be very different. The book is full of old classics like the Boeing 707, Caravelle, Trident, early Airbus, and various propliner types. You just don’t see these flying any more.


Here’s a summary of the book’s features:

  • See airlines and liveries from days gone by
  • Full of glossy colour photographs
  • Features airlines from across Europe
  • Many classic aircraft types
  • Airlines include many colourful holiday carriers
  • From well-known aviation writer Matt Falcus


The book is the perfect addition to your aviation bookshelf. While away hours remembering how airlines use to look, and at just how many famous names have disappeared from our skies.

It’s even a chance to see how our major airports used to look, and the opportunities that used to exist for getting close to aircraft to take pictures. You won’t be disappointed.
