Qantas Airbus A380-842 Sliver Roo Livery
Qantas Airbus A380-842 Taxing at SYD
My Point of View
Qantas is Australia’s most popular airline to travel with, dating back 99 years making 2020 their 100th year as a company. This request is for the Qantas Airbus A380-842 in the Sliver Roo Livery on VH-OQA (Nancy-Bird Walton).
Qantas’s Point Of View
About a hundred years ago something special happened in Australia. In a nation of just four million people, at the far end of the world, Australia produced a generation of global aviation pioneers. Qantas is the heir to their extraordinary legacy.
Qantas is very proud to be naming our A380 fleet after our aviation legends. Among them will be Charles Kingsford Smith, Reg Ansett, Hudson Fysh, Bert Hinkler and David Warren, who invented the Black Box Flight Recorder.
And on September 30 2008, in a very special ceremony, we named our first A380 after Nancy-Bird Walton - an inspiring Australian who overcame the same challenges as her peers, while overcoming the sexism of her times.
Qantas was absolutely delighted that Nancy agreed to have this first A380 named in her honour.
