How NOT to paint a plane
Must have been a bear to paint it....guess no one would notice if you were off by a few dots...(unless they actually count them prior to delivery!)
Patrick Egan
I will assume that your comments about this paint job on this Boeing 787-9, was written in ignorance,
and without respect for the Aboriginal people of Australia.
Geoffrey Luck
Nothing to do with respect for aborigines, Patrick. It's just another Qantas attempt at virtue-signalling. And it makes a mess of a nice aeroplane.

Very nice nice signification
Alan Hume
I agree Geoffrey. I'm Australian but I think this is gross. Yam Dreaming? A friend of mine refers to it as the Spud.
Robert Oldershaw
I disagree - a little color - aboriginal in nature aside - makes it stand out from the standard white

Patrick Egan....lighten up. We've had it up to here with this kind of crap. There was NOTHING wrong with the comment concerning the paint...just mentioning how difficult it must have been to do it. Sheesh!! Get a life.
Wow, some of you seem pretty upset about one plane’s paint job. It’s not like the entire fleet is painted like this. And Linda, only one person actually mentioned the difficulty of painting it.
Linda, YOU get a life... and a clue while you are at it!!

Nice pic! I think its a beautiful work of art. I salute Quantas for spending the money to make an impression, and simultaneously support commerce and the arts.

What is the company of the A330 parked before the Avianca? Nice design...
The A330 this side of the Avianca is operated by Fiji Airways...I think she is being leased.

Wow, everyone bashing each other over their opinions of this livery, just stop. No need! Your just embarrassing yourself by bashing others. Respect others please!

...for a little levity in the livery, check out 'Kulula Airlines flying 101'

I love the paint scheme and color, especially with the pic snapped with matching strobe lit in the night. Ground effects anyone?
