I'm not happy with my FMO picture disc. It has an ugly greenish overall colour. So my guestion is, are they all like that, or do the colour vary greatly from pressing to pressing?

I guess they were all like that. Look at this one here. Does yours look similar?

I've never really looked at that cloud formation before - it has an eerie look. Mmmm... you wouldn't catch me up in that plane!  :laugh:

Yes...what ever happened to the original painting? Does MO own it?

@ Kiwwy: maybe the green in the eil.com photo is a bit filtered by the plastic sleeve - when you pull the single out the colour may actually be darker and deeper. About the painting, well, I seem to recall that it was done especially for Mike by an artist who was specialized in aviation paintings, so it's most probably still in Mike's possession.

@ nightspore: you wouldn't catch Mike again up there either, at least not so often, immediately after he did that song - it is actually about a very bad flying experience of his. :) And of course that cloud formation was painted, so maybe it was really meant to look eerie. :)

As you can see, it was my first one that had the green tint. :D
