How to see Qantas' Boeing 737 in retro 'Flying Kangaroo' livery

By David Flynn, November 17 2014

Qantas' stunning new Boeing 737-800 in retro livery is a sight to behold – so just how can you get to see it for yourself?

For Sydney-siders, your first chance will come when the jet glides into Sydney Airport's T1 terminal around 11.30am on Wednesday November 19, at the end of its two-day delivery flight from Seattle’s Boeing Field airport.

(Aviation enthusiasts can track the inbound flight of the Boeing 737-800, which carries the registration number VH-XZP, as QF6024 using services like FlightAware.)

The plane, which has been named for the late former Qantas CEO James Strong but has also been informally dubbed 'RetroRoo', will then make its way to Qantas Hangar 416 at the Qantas JetBase for an official welcome ceremony.

This eye-catching Boeing 737 isexpected to join its peers on domestic Qantas routes from Saturday November 22nd, most notably darting along the popular triangle between Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
