The name looks slightly different - have they gone for "Sir Charles Kingsford Smith" or is it just the picture?

A380 New Roo. The 'whale' wears it well. 2 thumbs up from me :) Looking forward to seeing other angles of it :) Thanks to those who find/post the pics :)

I'm still not sold on that line of silver on the leading towards the tail. Unless there's a gradient it just looks a little much. Such a good font for the Qantas titles though. So damn good.

Just to clear up this particular aircraft someone had said it was going in for painting earlier in the thread, hence why i changed it to painted, obviously that is incorrect so I will change it later

Last I heard, the first B717 will go to paint in July. That might change, of course. Are the 747s being done at all? Hoping to see an A332 go soon.

QF said that entire fleet would be done by the centenary which is late-2021 so I’d say that the ERs will be painted but probably not the older 4 (one of which is being retired this year IIRC).

At some point I would expect the 6 ER frames to be repainted. The other four I would say unlikely, as they are due for retirement before the November 2020 deadline for the repainting to be completed.

I am presuming given all 747s will be out of the fleet by end of 2020, none will be repainted into the new livery. Would expect all to be out by November 2020 to allow for all planes in a single livery for the big 100th Birthday

Qantas just exercised 6 more B787-9 options for 2019-2020 delivery. All 747s will be retired at that point. http://australianaviation.com.au/2018/0 ... etirement/

    VH-SCE could be named 'Whyalla'. There's a flightradar24 photo with the name appearing to end ......LLA.

    Plus the following:
    VH-SBG 'Kiama'
    VH-SBJ 'Griffith'
    VH-SBW 'Goulburn'

    Looks great, the engine logos look great on the 380. Hoping to get one these beasts in silveroo when I do QF1 in November.

    VYC next in for wifi.
    ZK-ZQE is in the process of being transferred back to mainline as VH-VZJ at BNE.

    Also on a side note, does anyone know if EBN is in for maintenance or repainting at Singapore?

    Just occurred to me that Qantas are the first airline to apply a new livery since their launch.

    Are you referring to the A380s? If so then you are right.

    Watching the video of the A330 reminded me of something that bugs me every time I go through BNE. Are they ever going to update the branding on their hangars? They skipped the 2007 logo.

    It’s the same at SYD, which I think is surprising given how prominent the hangars are (especially from T3). The A380 hangar in the middle (217 IIRC?) has new signage but the others all have old faded logos and look rather tatty IMO.

    Exterior signage doesnt seem top of QFs priority list - eg. The pre-84 era signage that was on top of the Melbourne terminal until last year

    Leave anything long enough and it will be retro and in vogue again...
