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

On Sunday 10 June, Qantas Airways Boeing B737-800 VH-VYH made its first visit into Central Queensland after it had been re-painted into the airline's new 'Silver-Roo' colour scheme.

VH-VYH was noted arriving into Hamilton Island Airport from Sydney as QFA866 and marks the eighth 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-VYH was re-painted in Singapore during September 2017 and joins several other B737-800s in the Qantas fleet which have had the new livery applied.  It was also one of the final B737-800s that were left in the very old 1984-style Qantas livery.

Now, with as many as 20 of the current Qantas Boeing B737-800 fleet now adorned in the new 'Silver-Roo' livery, we hope to start to see a few more pop into CQ at Hamilton Island Airport over the coming weeks!
