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

On Sunday 3 June, Qantas Airways Boeing B737-800 VH-VZF made its first visit into Central Queensland after it had been re-painted into the airline's new 'Silver-Roo' colour scheme.

VH-VZF at Adelaide Airport also on Sunday 3 June

VH-VZF was noted arriving into Hamilton Island Airport from Melbourne (Tullamarine) as QFA870 and marks the seventh 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-VZF was re-painted Flying Colours facility at Townsville during April and May and joins several other B737-800s in the Qantas fleet which have had the new livery applied.

Moreover, as we mentioned below, VH-VZF only 'rejoined' the Qantas mainline fleet in Australia in November 2017 after operating for Qantas Jetconnect in New Zealand as ZK-ZQA since 2009.

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!
