THE CONTINENTAL BOEING 777

CONSIDERED BY PM AS ONE OF HIS BEST WORKS

Continental Airlines commissioned artist Peter Max to design this special color scheme as a salute for "NYC 2000" and New York City. It was unveiled in November 1999. Boeing 777-224 ER N77014 (msn 29862) awaits runway departure clearance at London's Gatwick Airport. This great shot is available as a color print from the Airliners Gallery Photo Library (http://www.airlinersgallery.com). (Antony J. Best)

 Newly arrived detailed die cast version 12 inches long



One of Continental Airlines' Boeing 777 aircraft (registered N77014) sported 
a special livery designed by Max. The livery was removed
in the winter of 2007–2008 (wikipedia)
This is a beautifully hand made wooden replica  of aprox. 8 inches.
I believe it was originally painted  around 2002.


 His art has flown the skies on a Continental Airlines 777 Super Jet. His installations include a 600-ft stage for the Woodstock Music Festival, a giant mural 
for the Winter Olympics and 10-ft guitars for the Rock & 
Roll Hall of Fame ( from www.petermax.com, meet Peter)
