Witness the painting of Scoot’s first aircraft in this rather-entertaining time-lapse video (from Scoot’s YouTube page):
After asking members of the social media public to suggest and vote for names to represent their aircraft, this Boeing 777-200 with registration ‘9V-OTA’ (ex Singapore Airlines with registration ‘9V-SQA’) has been christened ‘Barry’.
I must say that Scoot’s aircraft livery — in this video, pictures, and in the flesh — is kind of outstanding in its own right. Previously, when there were only mock-ups of the livery in pictures and on a scaled model, it wasn’t the most aesthetically-pleasing design to look at.
My best wishes to Scoot on their continual success!
(And on a side note, any bets on when 9V-OTA was actually painted?)
