What a daft colour......

to paint the main fuselage of an airliner....

 

Everyone knows that the colour BLACK "attracts" the sun`s heat rays...  so this ariline probably has longer and fatter planes, at the end of each flight  ! ! ! ..

On the other hand it warms it up when it's at 39000ft with an outside temperature of -56C. Less heating required?

I remember Concorde was almost all white unlike other BA aircraft, and it still got longer by a tiny amount during flight.
