Malaysian low cost carrier AirAsia, paid tribute to the Queens Park Rangers (QPR) Football Club, by unveiling an A320 9M-AFV painted in a special QPR livery. The airline also paid homage to the club’s legendary former captain and assistant manager, the late Alan McDonald naming this aircraft after him.

The Airbus A320 is painted in the football club’s colours with a prominent tail that features QPR’s iconic hoops; the blue and white horizontal stripes just like the team’s home jersey. The interior of the aircraft carries fun facts on both QPR and Alan McDonald.

Mr McDonald spent 17 years at QPR beginning in 1979 as a youth player, and made over 500 appearances for the club after making his first-team debut in 1983.

AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes is the majority owner of the club.
