From a distance, this looks like the Southwest Airlines "Canyon Blue" livery applied to a 747!

Nice detail. I especially like the clarity of the wing-to-fuselage fairing... God, that thing's huge!

Sad to see a great bird go to the scrap. You can still se some of the art on the doors and windows.

Sad to see this beauty like this! But I'm guessing the Nalanji Dreaming scheme will be painted on one of the new Qantas A380s or 787s! Wouldn't that be a site to behold!

What a shame. imagine they send the "Wunala Dreaming" to the scrapman once. unimaginable. it`s not an compensation if they get her very paintjob on other planes.

You`ll be forever in hours hearts.
Rest in Peace in Planes Heaven.

What a sad view! When did they retire her? Let's hope one of their A380s/744s will receive the beautiful Nalanji Dreaming c/s.

And she's still waiting :( We all call her Big Blue now and with the Airshow coming up in March, 2009 she'll be hidden in one of the hangars yet again :(

It is a shame i heard someone at qantas forgot to renew the lease for the engines so thats why she got an early retirement

Haunting photo and sad too, at the time she was parked up qantas was scrapping rolls powered 747's, so no shortage of engines. she was the victim of spare parts shortages and overcapacity.

Why did they paint over her? They should've let her to age gracefully.
