Air New Zealand Boeing 787-9 | All Blacks Livery

Air New Zealand Boeing 787-9 | All Blacks Livery
Hello IFC!

Today I have got a livery request for, in my opinion, is one of the cleanest, coolest looking 787 livery out there, the ANZ 787-9 All Blacks Livery! This livery differs from the normal ANZ 787-9 by having an inverted colour scheme along the fuselage, which in my opinion looks way better than the normal livery.

Important Information
  • Registration: ZK-NZE
  • Airline: Air New Zealand
  • Aircraft: Boeing 787-9
  • Entered service: Late 2014
  • Most Recent Flight: NZAA-WSSS, ANZ6016

This livery was painted on Air New Zealand’s first 787-9 that they aquired in 2014, and it has been seen on the same aircraft ever since. However, last year this aircraft was involved in an incident at Auckland Airport involving a catering truck, and it has been out of action for most of 2019. However on March 12 of this year, it went out on its first test flight, and is now flying many long haul flights around the world. Air New Zealand have also purchased 8 787-10 and I hope that this livery will be on one of those as well.


Why is it called "All Blacks"?
The All Blacks are New Zealand's national rugby union team, and ANZ are official sponsors of them, hence the name. Recently Air New Zealand went through a campain called "Crazy about Rugby" during the 2019 Rugby World Cup, which shows how commited ANZ is towards this sport. The All Blacks livery is also featured on one of every aircraft in Air New Zealand's fleet. These include the 777-300ER, 777-200ER, A320, ATR-72 and Q-300.

Why I believe this should be added

I think that having this livery in the sim would make people fly in or out of New Zealand more, and therefore making this region more popular. It would also give the chance to people who like to fly ultra realistic, to replicate this aircraft’s movements around the world. And also, just look at it! Why wouldn’t you want it in the sim?


This request was mod approved, former duplicates were old with little information
