Chilean Airline Liveries

My original aviation themed website.

Launched in 2003 this was quite an advanced website using Macromedia Flash (now Adobe Flash) animation, or .swf files. The illustrations are very basic profiles of aircraft, but very popular with hobbyists and historians.

I've reactivated it due to constantly high demand from followers around the world since I shut it down in 2015.

I will aim to update it with missing liveries and aircraft in between my primary focus, which are the high detail precise prints.
