Beautiful! I always did like the CP Air livery on any of their planes. One of the planes in my FSX hangar is an MD-11 in  a fantasy CP Air livery. ;)

Hi Aharon,

 

great pics. When I was a kid, I had a poster of a CP DC-10 on my wall. Brings back nice memories. Later, Wardair and Canadian were among my favorites.
