Actually, those are new colors.

Anyway, you were a total ass about the whole thing, about time you appologize for your racist stupidity I think.

Tom
you do realize that the airplane was painted nazi and was flying around europe? It is not anymore but it was. What do I have to apologize for? The fact that I dont agree that it is legal to fly nazy symbols and bringing attention to the fact that it is legal to nazi in switzerlan ?

And I am a racist because I dont like nazi flying around on bridges and airplanes? wtf?

Re: Nazis in Switzerland

Nazi technology.

Hmmmm. All those inventive scientists lived in that time and would have lived in that time no matter who governed Germany.

Did the political system trigger their brains?

Or did they just get a little more money for their research from the Nazis and would have invented it all anyway - maybe a little slower/later?

Will the electric BMW's be called CDU technology in 70 years?

They captured an alien who taught them all kinds of stuff like anti-gravity machines and that kind of thing. Unfortunately, some of the technology was simply too advanced for even German technicians to replicate, but the knowledge didn't go away.

I can't say where it went, but isn't it funny how it was the Americans who invented the telephone and television and the internet and sentient grass?

Well, the Democrats founded the KKK, which sort of makes them nazis, so I suppose it's all Democrat technology.

The invention of Velcro was a particularly big hit. And LSD. Also the vacuum cleaner. Ingenious!

Not logic. What do the KKK have to do with all those inventions?

If we follow the logic of "Nazi technology" we have to figure out which party ruled USA at the time each item was invented.

And applying this rule/theory discounts the personal ingenuity and/or diligence of the scientists who invented all these things. What an affront!

And last but not least: Aunty Ju was invented by Hugo Junkers, a pacifist, who was - later! - dispossessed by the Nazis. They stole it all from him, painted their flag on it and now edzoom - some expat - bitches about it being preserved and appreciated for what it really is: A piece of aircraft construction history. Not a piece of Nazi history.

The day a president of a country (let's say Putin) personally invents something worth while remembering/keeping, one may call it a communist invention. But even then that would be wrong as I doubt it's the political ideology that triggers a brain to invent something useful. (pun intended).

First of all, must have just missed you at the flugfeld - the fuel tender was waiting for the tourists to leave the hardpan when I left.

OK, we've covered WHY it was painted like that - money. They were paid to have the plane serve as an extra in a film. Obviously, they were paid a lot of money to do so - this is not necessarily because of the odiousness of the Nazi imagery, but because the gave up the Falken sponsorship money to do so.

If you're looking for any kind of reassurance that the Nazi livery came off as soon as contractually able, follow the money.

Ju-Air is PAID to keep those planes looking a particular way. Every day beyond the contractual limit to wear the WWII livery COST them money lost from the Falken contract.

And I stand by my previous statement - films and TV shows will always want to portray period vehicles in period livery - which means that sometimes they will paint their vehicles in odious colours - Soviet, Nazi, Imperial Japanese, whatever. This is part of maintaining history, and part of the business.

I like the fact that we've got a brand new verb in English and none of us even noticed!

Anyone fancy a bit of light naziing this weekend? BYOA (Bring Your Own Aeroplane).

No, you're a stubborn (expletives selfcensored, the nicest one looks like i...t) for
i) continuing with your baseless claim that actually runs counter to what the photographer explicitly mentions
ii) not realising what the historic paint really was for
iii) claiming it was even flying for a significant time in that paint, let alone flying all over Europe. Prove your claim.

You said it, not me!

However, feel free to provide evidence that it was flying around painted like that other than while being part of the movie or being transèported.

I gave him 24h to find evidence.

Look buddy, you have now two real options: a) You go out, take a picture of the plane your self, and post it here. b) Or you apologizes for being jumpy and stop with your baseless rants and spurious claims.
A third option, but that is neither yours nor mines to decide, is a ban from the mods for trolling.

I hereby give you 24h to find and present evidence, that the plane was seen "flying all over Europe and Switzerland" with the colors used for the movie shooting. Only photographic or video evidences not taken around February are accepted.
At least he went out, took pictures how it looks right now, and uploaded them. Part of the request was fulfilled. Evidence how it looked in January, March, April etc still not presented. Btw: Nice catch of editing Mr. Mängisch_Kanadisch

It is the Tarnkappenanstrich which is also used on the Reichsflugscheiben. So no photographs. The pictures from Hungary are actually paintings and not Lichtbildaufnahmen.
