    I’m not usually too excited over new aircraft liveries, but this one is pretty awesome. Air New Zealand has unveiled the livery of the first of its new A320s, which will be painted in the colors of the All Blacks (New Zealand’s national rugby team, for all those who don’t follow the greatest game).

    The carrier released this video (below) showing what the aircraft will look like. I can hardly wait to actually see it. The plane will be delivered in January, and will be flying on domestic routes. It will be the only one to be painted in All Blacks colors. Air New Zealand is a major sponsor of the All Blacks, who feature in cameo roles in the carrier’s in-flight safety video. (If you're curious, the soundtrack is "Why Does Love Do This To Me" by New Zealand band The Exponents -- one of the classic Kiwi tunes).
