Video: new Qantas Boeing 737-800 in Aboriginal livery

We've already served up photos galore of Qantas' new Boeing 737 Mendoowoorrji sporting its unique livery based on the work of Aboriginal artist Paddy Bedford.

As an added bonus, you can watch this special 'show and tell' video which shares some of the details behind the livery plus footage of the Mendoowoorrji... and yes, more great photos too!

Don't forget our close-up look at the Mendoowoorrji – and if you're flying Qantas on Australian domestic routes from mid-November onwards, there's a good chance you'll see the Mendoowoorrji at an airport or even take a flight on her!

Australian Business Traveller travelled to Seattle and will return to Sydney on the delivery flight of the new Boeing 737-800 Mendoowoorrji as a guest of Qantas and Boeing.

    I like the livery on the back half of the fuselage, but the bit wrapping around the nose looks like a zipper unzipping the white layer of paint!

    looking forward to seeing it 'in the flesh'..just hope the colours 'hold up' in our harsh climate..looks very high gloss..maybe there is a 'protective coating'..would hate to see it fade too much over repainting  the artwork doesnt seem to be an option...the current 737 art (Yananyi Dreaming)  is looking very faded.. I still love seeing it though :-)
