Kulula, a fairly new South African budget airline that apparently doesnt take themselves too seriously, came up with a hilarious "flying 101" paint job for their fleet of 737's.

For those parts of the plane that are impossible to make out clearly:

captain's window - the big cheese (”captain, my captain!”)
co-pilot window - co-captain (the other pilot on the PA system)
jump seat - for wannabe pilots

Other features of the plane:

galley (cuppa anyone?)
avionics (fancy navigation stuff)
windows (best view in the world)
wing #1 and #2
engine #1 and #2 (26 000 pounds of thrust)
emergency exit = throne zone (more leg room baby!)
seats (better than taxi seats)
some windows = kulula fans (the coolest peeps in the world)
black box (which is actually orange)
landing gear (comes standard with supa-fly mags)
back door (no bribery/corruption here)
tail (featuring an awesome logo)
loo (or mile-high club initiation chamber)
rudder (the steering thingy)
stabiliser (the other steering thingy)
a.p.u. (extra power when you need it most)
galley (food, food, food, food…)
boot space
ZS-ZWP (OK-PIK) = secret agent code (aka plane’s registration)
overhead cabins (VIP seating for your hand luggage)
fuel tanks (the go-go juice)
cargo door
aircon ducts (not that kulula needs it… they’re already cool)
front door (our door is always open … unless we’re at 41 000 feet)
cockpit window = sun roof
nose cone (radar, antenna, and a really big dish inside)

That's cool. I like being reminded of the black box when I board a plane.

Maybe they should put them in Cars?

Would you still drive?

That would be a good idea.

"Hmm, the black box seems to indicate a sudden stop. I wonder if that happened during the head-on crash."

Painted flames are popular on cars. Maybe they should put them on planes, too.

Another thing that would be cool would be to let the pilots name them and do nose art, a la WWII.

Nice body of work by that pilot.

I think we should let drivers do that. It would warn people. Let them know how big your AutoPenis is. "Oh, shit! Look at that guy! He's got three old lady silhouettes, two drunks, a baby carriage, a bike messenger, twelve jaywalkers, and one motorcycle cop!!"
