How To Curb Airplane Crashes: Just Paint Over Them

I gotta hand it to China: no one is as absolutely shameless when it comes to pulling out all the stops to protect their image as the Chinese.

Via Mainichi Daily News (with before and after photos):

China Airlines has painted over its name and logo on the wreckage of a passenger jet that exploded in flames at Naha Airport in Okinawa moments after passengers slid down emergency chutes to escape.

The airline painted over the name “China Airlines” on the left-hand side of the aircraft and the company’s logo on the plane’s tail fin.

After the accident, photographs and video footage of the jet continued to appear in news reports, and the company apparently painted over the name and logo to limit further damage to its image.
