Each week I do an airline livery and many times I have been given a heads up by Yvette Scott (@airlinesangel) on new liveries to take a look at. I am about to return from my vacation and have asked her to do the livery of the week today. Here is her post:
Iâ€™m very honoured that David had asked me to select the livery of the week.Â Each week I look forward to which airline/livery David has discovered, manyÂ are new, many are from the past, but they all have a story to tell in the greatÂ world of aviation.
The airline Iâ€™ve selected is Qantas, Australia’s largest airline and theÂ considered to be the world’s oldest continually operating airline. Their fleetÂ consists of over 251 aircraft, ranging from Bombardier Dash 8 to Airbus A380.
Today their livery is white fusalage with a red tail featuring the distinctiveÂ kangaroo logo. Their B747-438, in addition to their usual city names, carryÂ the word “Longreach” as part of the livery. This signifies both the “long reach”Â of the aircraft and the town where Qantas began. In 1993, as part of theÂ International Year of the Worldâ€™s Indigenous People, some aircraft wereÂ named and painted aircraft with Aboriginal themes.
