UPDATE | Check out our extensive photo gallery of the newest Qantas Boeing jet adorned with Aboriginal livery plus the story behind this innovative project – click here!
PREVIOUS | Qantas has shared the first photos of a bold new Boeing jet painted in unique Aboriginal art which will begin flying on domestic Australian services next month.
The new Boeing 737-800 'Mendoowoorrji' features a design inspired by the work of the late West Australian indigenous artist Paddy Bedford.
It's been painted in its Dreamtime colours at Boeing's factory in Seattle before being flown to Australia next week to enter service on domestic routes.
This will be the fourth member of Qantas' Boeing fleet to carry Aboriginal art, although it's a more subdued and less eye-catching livery than its Dreamtime predecessors, beginning almost 20 years ago with the breathtaking Boeing 747-400 'Wunala Dreaming' (shown below).
This was followed by a second Boeing 747, 'Nalanji Dreaming', with a Boeing 737-800 named 'Yananyi Dreaming' (below) revealed in 2002.
Australian Business Traveller will fly to Seattle next week and return on the delivery flight of the new Boeing 737-800 'Mendoowoorrji' as a guest of Qantas and Boeing.
