Can anyone identify the Qantas plane (about the center of the picture, below the NW plane) that is in silver?

Thanks.

Good question.. it must be the lighting or something, or an interim livery. Sorry I can't contribute any info of value, but I am joined in your curiousity!

Good catch Demoose, now that I look at it, I think you might just be right; I think I see a blu-ish tint to it.

I agree also... the pic below shows a similar glare on the same aircraft.

Quite probably is VH-EBU. She came out of the shop after her life extension upgrades on 09 Feb - this pic was taken a couple of weeks after that.
Cheers.

Demoose - good eye, you caught it! I think it is that plane, the image is just fuzzy and differently colored because of the sun's reflection.
