Yeah on site at CYQA. That's where Jazz has been repainting their CRJs but it seems they've moved on to the Q now that they've painted all the CRJs that were still in the old school "Jazz" livery.

Jazz Q400 C-GGOY (401) is in new livery. Not the best picture but found it on instagram. Personally I think it would look better if the nacelles were painted black as well.



EDIT: Better photo

Q400 C-GKUK (402) is enroute to YQA for repainting. Seems they're doing them in order. 403 is a western bird so I wonder if they'll fly her all the way back to Muskoka or go somewhere else out west.

That is a sharp looking bird! I like it, though I wonder why they didnít go with black engine nacelles too in order to be consistent with the other jet-powered planes.

It does seem strange the black engines didn't make the cut on the Dash. I did a mock up on a flightsim paint and they looked OK.

Moving on, I believe 77W C-FITL is due from VCV with the new livery. It's due to operation to LHR tomorrow.

Maybe black nacelle and black props are a no-no for visibility.

Definitely possible. I work on the ramp with Qs and those nacelles hang pretty low. The white may also make it easier to spot damage or leaks. But then again the same argument could be made for jets so idk.

I was thinking maybe it's because the props are right at mid-fusalage level so it would disrupt the low level black line/underbelly that the jets have.

Looks like you're right as B77W C-FITU is on its way to VCV now. Hopefully someone snaps a photo of FITL before she leaves YYZ today.

Another low quality instagram find but B77W C-FITL (731) is in new livery. I wonder why they started the 300s when they still have half the 200s in old livery.
EDIT: Better photo
