Twelve fantastically creative airplane paint jobs

To an airline, their airplanes are their best advertising outlet – they may invest millions in billboards and TV commercials, but a creative paint job is what’ll really turn some heads at the airport.

Wired collected twelve of the best paint jobs from airlines around the world, including the Kulula Air jet which we first mentioned back in January. Others include a plane chartered by Iron Maiden and the brilliant Swiss Airlines Flower Power jet. Sadly, the Wired lineup does not include the Qantas 747 Formula 1 jet which flew back in 2000 (pictured above).

So, head on over to Wired, and check out the brilliant creative work on these twelve jets. Got a photo of a jet with a great paint job? Leave a link in the comments section!
