Gol Transportes Aéreos (G3/GLO - Gol)

Here's one from a request, depicting Gol Transportes Aéreos (or should it be Gol Linhas Aéreas Intelegentes SA?). It is an LCC based in São Paulo, Brazil, although it has operational bases in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, and Brasilia. Ever since its inception, the airline operates an all Boeing 737 fleet. The airline was once considered to become a member of oneworld but decided to go it alone.

Here is a rendition of the airlines' livery on a Bombardier CRJ1000. As some of you may know, I've actually lost all my Bombardier templates the last time my computer crashed so I had to start from scratch. It gave me an appreciation of how annoying it is to render this aircraft ('',). Not only are the spacing of windows a tad random, there is also a lack of ready photo galleries that show the airliner in painstaking details... and I am one for pain (I guess). Surprisingly there is no walk-around gallery out there of this aircraft. But here it is, done! For this illustration, I moved the position of the web address below the windows to fill up the white expanse and would make it more legible if a passenger is to see it at ground level. The registration is positioned as with all airlines operating this type. I was tempted to paint the engine cowling orange, but decided against it.

This would have been a plain old Gol illustration, but check out the winglets. This aircraft features the new (at the moment still in testing) split scimitar winglet developed by aviation partners.
