It’s back to the Seventies Down Under

Qantas is to paint a second Boeing 737-800 aircraft in a 1970s retro livery to mark its 95th anniversary. The Australian airline wants to build on the popularity of the first historical livery unveiled last year.
Group executive for brand, marketing and corporate affairs, Olivia Wirth, said: “You can see from what’s posted on social media that people enjoy taking photos of Retro Roo I as it travels to airports around Australia. Crew tell us it’s always a talking point when it pulls up to the gate and people get on board, though they’re generally pleased that it’s not 1974 on in the inside as well.”
“The Retro Roo II livery is part of celebrations for our 95th anniversary and it’s also a good contrast to the innovation happening at Qantas, particularly as we start to prepare for our first B787 Dreamliners in 2017”.
