Russian airline liveries: Yamal Airlines ("Ямал")

With not much going on in the Russian airline industry since in the last few weeks, so I thought it was a good opportunity to go for a more visual type of post and share some of the original airline liveries I have come across while in Russia.

So here is the first one, spotted at Domodedovo airport, Yamal Airlines ("Ямал"), an airline that takes its name from a frozen peninsula in Russia's far North, although most of its routes now are centered on other regions, such as the Siberian oil region of Tyumen or the, somewhat warmer, Anapa, on Russia's Black Sea Coast.

Plain and simple, I don't know whether it was intentional or not but I can't stop thinking that there is a point of "retro-ness" in this livery that makes it quite cool.

Do you agree?
