Oooo, those are nice!

I especially like the 'Proud Wings' scheme with the more naturalistic goose  :smiley:

Thanks! These were fun to make too... I particularly enjoyed figuring out the logo on the first one, to merge the EPA goose with the Nordair... thingy. But the goal all along for having Canadian exist in AltBC despite PWA and CP still being around was the Proud Wings scheme. It's an all-time favourite!

I used to have this wonderful 3'x4' Proud Wings poster. I hope I still have it somewhere.



That's glorious! I hope you still have it, too!

Do you have that as a png file ideally with a transparent background?

After the merger with Awyr Cymru Newydd, the Tridents kept the basic ACN livery, with only the titles replaced and the red dragon removed. This livery was made the standard for Kootenay Airways in 1985, with the pre-merger Kootenay Airways fleet receiving the red and green stripes as well.


In 1994, Kootenay Airways introduced a new logo that is still in use, applying it to the tail of its aircraft to replace the plain white; also, the titles were changed in appearance, with the port side featuring the company name in English, whilst the starboard side carried it in Welsh, Awyr Cwtnae. All four Trident 7As were retired prior to the introduction of the current livery in 2012.

Pacific Western was the fourth airline to take delivery of the Trident 7A, painted in the livery introduced the year before. VB-PVA seen here was the first delivered to PWAL; it was lost in an accident in 1980.


A new livery was introduced in 1972, so only the first ten Trident 7As were delivered in the 1967 colours; the last two, VB-PVK and VB-PVL, received the new paint scheme at the factory.


In the event, it was only seven years before the wedge scheme was replaced, with all Trident 7As being repainted into the new livery from 1979.


Between 1989 and 1994, Pacific Western were the primary shirt sponsor of Vancouver Rowing Club's football section - one of BC's most popular football clubs; this was advertised by featuring the PWAL logo on the players' shirts, and Rowing Club's emblem on Pacific Western's aircraft, placed prominently next to the forward entry door. One wonders how passengers who were supporters of Rowers' rivals such as Royal City or Vancouver City felt upon boarding... (see https://dominionofbc.miraheze.org/wiki/Vancouver_Rowing_Club for the Rowers' history).


Only a single Trident 7A remained in service with Pacific Western when another new livery was introduced in late 1994. With a sale expected at any time, VB-PVB became the last aircraft active in the 1979 livery; ultimately, it was repainted in 1998, less than a year before its retirement in 1999.

Very nice! But your final scheme on VB-PVB is a stunner  :smiley:
You better stock up on water, canned goods off the shelves
And loot some for the old folks who can't loot for themselves
The doorbell's ringing, could be the elves
But it's probably the werewolf, it's quarter to twelve
And when it's midnight, ... the wolf bites
