I still think it's peculiar, maybe it's peculiar that in 12 yrs you've never came up with a better paint scheme.

I made the correction to the history paragraph. Thanks.

C-GZZL used to have so many colours on it that we decided to paint it in only one.  In a peculiar scheme.  ;-)

This aircraft had a peculiar paint scheme.

I hope you use just a little bit more contrasting color for accent, than just the registry mark and the Helio logo.

It is just..... really red.

How about going from etrange fille to Belle fille rouquine
