Lost Airline Colours of Asia
Relive the colours of Asia's airlines in days gone by
A comprehensive look at the airlines and colour schemes worn by airlines across Asia which no longer grace our skies.
From my vast photographic archive, as well as contributions from other accomplished aviation photographers, this book traces these airlines from decades ago right up to recent days and their liveries in full colour photographs.
The nature of the airline industry means the colours and names we are familiar with often disappear for good. Even the airlines that have lasted the distance have undergone significant changes in their branding.
Other examples are airline names which have long disappeared, falling victim to the changing aviation industry and the loss of once proud air carriers.
The book also provides comprehensive details on the airlines included, covering their history and notes about the colour schemes worn.
Features full colour photography throughout. A perfect addition to the aviation enthusiast s bookshelf.
This, my second book, was my lockdown project and is now available.
