Mendoowoorrji Art Aircraft

Mendoowoorrji was painted at Boeing’s headquarters in Seattle and delivered to the Qantas fleet in November 2013. The design took over 950 person-hours to complete over a five day period. It used 500 litres (125 kilograms) of paint.

Balarinji and Boeing designers and painters worked with 140 nylon stencils to recreate the intricate designs. The livery used novel techniques to achieve the paint strokes and detailed shading on the fuselage so the reproduction would capture the integrity of the original artwork.
