The remark says "Something unusual can be seen". What is unusual? I just don't see it.

It's still there. I searched for Air New Zealand and it was the second shot that came up. I don't see anything unusual.

Maybe we should email Alexander, and ask him, just what is so unusual about this.

My guess:

maybe something looks unusual with the B747 in the back... you can only see the left vertical stabilizer....

The text under the Qantas title says "The Australian Airline". Doesn't it usually say "The Spirit of Australia"?

I could guess it has something to do with the airport? Maybe it's an Air New Zealand only terminal with a Qantas a/c? I don't know AKL.

Very true!!! That maybe the one...

Didn't they changed that "claim" in mid/late 90's??? but few are still flying with the old paint?

"The Australian Airline" is the old slogan of Qantas, and the new "The Spirit Of Australia" titles may have not been painted to all of the Qantas fleet, so I don't think it is that unusual..


The biggest mistake made by most human beings: Listening to only half, understanding just a quarter and telling double.

I only notice 2 things weird....

1. One guy wearing shorts the other a coat... (As mentioned above)
2. The runway in the backround is closed. (Notice the yellow X)

Not on VH-OGN (pictured), VH-OGO, VH-OGP, VH-OGQ, VH-OGR, VH-OGT and VH-OJR! So as Hoons says it's not unusual! They are gradually being repainted.

Hoons90,

Slight Adjustments....

The Qantas tag line was always "The Spirit Of Australia'

When it Acquired Australian Airlines in the 90's it changed to "The Australian Airline" and then QF was privatised by the government, they hoped that the slogan "The Australian Airline" would prove that even though QF was privatised it was to remain an Australian Airline.

Then all aircraft in the late 90's early 2000's the aircraft appeard to have "The Spirit of Australia"

Now QF has changed it to make if more simpler "Spirit of Australia" as depicted below...

Is it the placement of the blanked out window in the forward cabin on the 767? Compared with that on other Quantas 338's that I looked at in the database this one appears to have the 12th row blanked.

My guess : on the Quantas 767 the legend Boeing 767 is written at the middle of the fuselage. Usually they put it in the back or the front of the plane.
