Qantas Boeing B737-800 VH-VZR in New Silver Roo Colour Scheme First Visit to Hamilton Island Airport

It's been a while, but on Wednesday 25 April, only the third different Qantas Airways Boeing B737-800, which has been re-painted into the airline's new 'Silver-Roo' colour scheme, finally made its first visit to Central Queensland.  VH-VZR was noted arriving into Hamilton Island Airport from Sydney as QFA866 and marks the third time that the new and updated Qantas livery and kangaroo logo has appeared in CQ on a Qantas B737-800.

As we have mentioned numerous times, several Qantas / QantasLink Dash-8-Q300 and Dash-8-Q400 turboprop aircraft have visited various CQ Airports many times wearing the new 'Silver-Roo' livery, which was introduced to coincide with the introduction the Boeing B787 Dreamliner into service with the airline late last year.

Of interest, VH-VZR was re-painted in Singapore during October and November last year and is one of several other B737-800s in the Qantas fleet which have had the new livery applied.

It appears that only this week, the 16th current Qantas Boeing B737-800 has emerged from the paint-shop now adorned in the new 'Silver-Roo' livery, so we hope to start to see a few more pop into CQ at Hamilton Island Airport over the coming weeks - hopefully not months!
