The ‘Qantas 100’ 787 Dreamliner has rolled out of the paint shop wearing a special livery commemorating Qantas’ upcoming centenary. VH-ZNJ ‘Longreach’, the airline’s 10th 787, features a celebratory ‘Qantas 100’ imprint and each Qantas logo since the airline’s founding in 1920 as Queensland and Northern Territories Aerial Services.

Tracking VH-ZNJ

Now that it’s out of the paint hangar VH-ZNJ will undergo test flights with Boeing before delivery to Qantas in November. After delivery, Qantas will bring the aircraft to London in preparation for its second Project Sunrise test flight to Sydney.

Qantas’ logos from 1920, 1930, 1944, and 1947

Evolution of the Qantas logo

The first aircraft to wear the Qantas logo was an Avro 504K in 1920.

The kangaroo made its first appearance in the 1944 version of the logo and has continued to evolve into the current streamlined kangaroo tail introduced in 2016.
