Good one!

Wasn't there a red DC-9/MD-80 of someone (European ?) in the 90's that was in McD's colours of the time and served McD's to the passengers at 30,000ft ?

At least BKs taste of beef; McDonalds all you taste is the salad and that horrible tasting mayo they plaster on it.

chevvron, I agree.

How about Col Sauders Roe Princess flying boat?

I used to walk past the Princess flying boat on my way to school. It languished forlorn, cocooned on a slipway for years before it was scrapped.

I believe it is in New Zealand and it appears to have had a makeover into the latest McD livery.

Yes it is. Saw it when visiting the lake back in February.
It does look well cared for!
