Qantas Boeing 787-9 (“Silveroo” 2017 Livery)

This request is for the new Qantas “New Roo” 2017 livery (announced in 2016) on the Boeing 787-9. The Qantas 787 livery in Infinite Flight is of the old 2007 livery and was never confirmed by Qantas as the livery that will be used on their 787s. The registration for this aircraft is VH-ZNA, MSN 39038.

VH-ZNA rolling out of the paint shop on September 21, 2017. Expected delivery October 12.

Qantas placed orders for 8 787-9 aircraft on 30 March, 2006. After 4 787-9 aircraft are delivered to Qantas, 2 747-400s will be phased out. Once the other 4 787-9s arrive, another 3 747-400s will also be phased out, leaving no 747s left in Qantas’ fleet. All of Qantas’ 11 Boeing 787-8 aircraft orders were delivered to Jetstar, with the first delivery flight having taken place on 30 September, 2013. All of Qantas Group’s 787s are/will be fitted with GEnx engines.

The old request for this livery was closed

Would advise voting on your own feature…


Yep, will do. It’s just that I have to remove a few of my votes since I was a regular and previously had a larger amount of votes to use.


Definitely needed as the current livery is somewhat unrealistic due to no Qantas 787-9 being painted in the older livery.

If only I had more votes!


@CannedAviation thanks for changing the title but I don’t think that’s necessary as this is the only Qantas 787 livery (the one in IF was never confirmed by Qantas).


Looks nice! I’ll drop a vote :)


It would be awesome if FDS updates the current QFA 789 with the Silverroo. I do hope I have more votes for this, I’ll consider slowly first if I want to remove one of my votes


Thanks for managing to find a spare vote!


I heard that they are gonna use their 787 from YSSY to PHNL! According to FlightAware, that route is being used by A330s! Nice upgrade


This beauty really has to come to IF 😍


I hope they use a 787 on the Los Angeles to New York route replacing VH-OEI.

What is your problem? Could you stop being so arrogant? It has been requested previously and was talked about in this thread:

The pictures were taken two days ago, so a moderator allowed me to create a new request. Btw it rolled out on September 21st and was posted on the 22nd.


I love the livery but I much prefer the 747 ;)


hoping to see the qantas dreamliner arrive on the 20th of November. Hopefully coming back from Fiji before it arrives


Yeah, me too. I’m dying to see a 747 repainted in the new livery before they’re all gone from the Qantas fleet. It would be an awesome lineup at the centenary.


Beautiful Maybe we are lucky they added the klm orange pride if this get enough votes voted


Wow, 10 votes already! It’s great to see this request get so much support and I hope the livery comes in the next update (fingers crossed) 👍
