Thanks to our antipodean friends at Australian Business Traveller, we have a few images to share from their news on the unveiling of Qantas’ latest Boeing-737 Aboriginal Painted Jet. The ‘Mendoowoorrji’ artwork is from the late Paddy Bedford, a famous West Australian Aboriginal artist, and specifically from his 2005 painting ‘Medicine Pocket’ and is different from it’s previous 747 and 737 Aboriginal Jets.

We personally love the details here, which are perhaps unnoticeable to most passengers, but even brush strokes have been painstakingly applied to the jet, giving the whole plane a feeling of texture and tactility that most other jets fail to achieve with their paint schemes.

    After the iconic Wunala, Nalanji and Yananyi Dreaming, this feels a bit like a letdown. It’s beautiful though and I love special paint schemes, but it’s not in the same league as Qantas’ previous special liveries.

    I like this modern aboriginal art. Although I don’t know why they bother having a aboriginal branded plane when the only difference is the paint job, that no one flying on it can see.

    Why not make it a special experience like EVA AIR does with their hello kitty plane.

    If you can have elaborate aboriginal art, but keep it stylistically minimalistic, Qantas nailed it.
