Qantas has unveiled a sleek new look for its latest 787 Dreamliner as the airline prepares for its 100th year in service.
The aircraft, Qantas’ 10th Dreamliner, has been given a special anniversary paint job at Boeing’s factory in Washington State.
The livery features a massive ‘Qantas100’ imprint across the sides of the plane, which will feature heavily as the airline embarks on a range of celebrations over the next 12 months.

It also features every single Qantas logo since the airline was founded in 1920.
The latest Dreamliner will also be named “Longreach” in a nod to the series of 747-400 jumbos that are being retired and the Queensland town where the airline was started.
Qantas CEO Alan Joyce said the aircraft livery is “a reminder of the airline’s past on its newest piece of technology.
“The story of Qantas is the story of modern Australia, and the logos on this livery tell that story from the beginning,” Mr Joyce said.
“Our Centenary celebrations are all about honouring our past with an eye on the future, so it’s very fitting that this special livery will be worn by our newest state-of-the-art Dreamliner.”
