Airline sends All Blacks sky high
September 17, 1999
Air New Zealand is to have an eleven metre high picture of the All Black front row on one of it's aircraft during the World Cup.
The plane, which will be used to bring the squad to the UK will have Anton Oliver, Carl Hoeft and Kees Meeuws pictured on both sides.
Earlier there had been a suggestion to paint a plane all black for the
occasion."We've created a real All Black's plane - not just another black plane," said Air New Zealand's Jim McCrea .
"We think this sends out a clean, clear message about the spirit of our team and the spirit of our country."
The image could remain on the plane for up to three months, "after a successful
World Cup campaign," McCrea said.
