Special Color Scheme Showcases Multinational AWACS Operations for NATO.
Special paint scheme aircraft are always interesting news but even more so when they are large ones. A newly painted NATO E-3A Sentry Airborne Warning and Control (AWACS) aircraft was unveiled in Geilenkirchen, Germany, yesterday Jun. 12, to celebrate 35 years of Boeing E-3A Sentry operation for NATO. Noteworthy, another E-3 was painted in special color scheme recently, in anticipation of NATO Tiger Meet 2017.
The newly painted aircraft features a clean-looking coat of the standard grey color with the large distinctive NATO blue stripe wrapping under the fuselage and continuing up onto the tail of the aircraft. Flags of NATO member nations are included on the large fuselage stripe while the tail wears a large NATO compass rose logo against the blue background.
