A Qantas 737 has broken cover at Boeing Field, Seattle wearing the latest in Qantas’s irregular series of “Flying Art” Indigenous paint schemes.
New-build 737-838 VH-XZJ is pictured here landing at Boeing Field on October 29.
Named Mendoowoorrji, the scheme is “from a painting which captures the heart of the Kimberley region”, according to Qantas. A special page on the Qantas website will detail the aircraft’s delivery flight to Australia, planned for mid November.
Mendoowoorrji becomes the fifth Qantas aircraft to wear an indigenous scheme, with two 747-400s (first VH-OJB and then OEJ) wearing the Wunala Dreaming scheme, 747-300 VH-EBU was painted as Nalanji Dreaming, and 737-800 VH-VXB was painted as Yananyi Dreaming.
Qantas has posted a Youtube clip – below – and will tweet about the aircraft using the #QFflyingart hashtag.
