It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, we have a Qantas Boeing 787-9 painted in the “Yam Dreaming” livery at London Heathrow Airport, as it rests after the non-stop flight from Perth, Austraila.
Qantas operates a fleet of 14 Boeing 787-9 aircraft in its wide-body fleet. The airline also operates the Airbus A330-200, Airbus A330-300 and Airbus A380 in its widebody operation.
Together, these provide long-haul connectivity between Austraila and the countries it serves, connecting the airline’s hubs in Perth, Syndey, Brisbane and Melbourne.
This aircraft – VH-ZND – is named Emily Kame Kngwarreye (an Aboriginal Australian artist). It joined the Qantas fleet in May 2018, making it over five years old at the time of writing. It has been operating out of its Sydney home to Johannesburg, Auckland, New York and Dallas.
More Airplane Art next week!
