As I am interested in Russian airlines and in retro airline liveries, this picture really caught my eye!

It's an Aeroflot Airbus A320 spotted at Toulouse (thanks Eurospot!) sporting a 1956 vintage livery that was first used by Tupolev Tu-104 of the same airline.

If you wish to see how the original looked like on a Tu-104 you can check out this British newsreel from 1956:

Or this book!
