Travolta unveils Qantas retro jet

first_imgSuperstar and Qantas Ambassador John Travolta has unveiled the airline’s first retro colour scheme to celebrate its 94th year. The design is also a flying tribute to 70 years of the iconic flying kangaroo logo – possibly the most widely recognized and respected brands in aviation. Mr Travolta said the retro livery brought back many memories. “It’s great to see a piece of Qantas history flying in the sky today,” said Mr Travolta. “I have enjoyed many wonderful experiences with Qantas over the years, from getting my 747 wings to having my own 707 painted in the original 1960s Qantas livery. This is a great celebration of the brand’s heritage and incredible reputation over the years. “I feel a great sense of pride just looking at this aircraft here today. Australia is lucky to have an airline like Qantas as its national carrier,” he said.Group Executive for Brand, Marketing and Corporate Affairs, Olivia Wirth said having the retro livery on a new aircraft is a celebration not only of the famous logo and the airline’s proud heritage but a reminder of the pioneering role that Qantas has held in the global aviation market. “For 70 years our logo has been a symbol of aviation innovation, but also a reminder that home is never far away,” said Ms Wirth. “Qantas holds a special place in the Australian psyche, and we know for many of our customers this livery will inspire a fond trip down memory lane“It’s a bit of a time warp having a 1970s livery on one of our brand new B737 aircraft but it’s the perfect way to highlight the years of experience behind the contemporary airline Qantas is today. Qantas the world’s oldest continuously operating airline and is the world’s most experienced being at the forefront of virtually all major technical innovations over the past 60 years.The signature element of the 1971-1984 livery design was the ochre band around the window line of the aircraft. Ochre reflected the colours of the outback where Qantas was established in 1920. The winged kangaroo logo is used on the tail and was adapted from the original 1947 version designed by Gert Sellheim.last_img read more

Visually challenged chess player’s feat goes unnoticed

first_imgThe sporting feat of a budding visually challenged chess sensation has gone completely unnoticed and unrewarded at a time when stellar performances of Odia athletes in the just-concluded Asian Games in Indonesia were widely acclaimed both by the State government and the private sector. Twenty-year-old Soundarya Kumar Pradhan won a silver medal at the 10th IBCA World Individual Junior Chess Championship for the Blind and Visually Impaired held in Poland in the third week of August. His feat assumes even greater significance considering the financial and infrastructure obstacles he faced in his journey from Boden in Odisha’s Nuapada district – one of the poorest and most backward regions of the country. “For a visually challenged, it was never easy to travel to Poland and compete with the best in the game. It hurts when nobody comes forward and pats your back when you bring laurels for the country against all odds,” rued Mr. Soundarya. He was a born with Leber congenital amaurosis, a disease genetically passed through families. It, however, did not deter him from dreaming. Initiated into chess at the age of four, Mr. Soundarya has been performing consistently in the game. He emerged as the champion at the national level on a couple of occasions and also won the bronze at the Asia Pacific Chess Championship for the Blind and Visually Impaired held in Karnataka in 2017 before clinching the silver last month.When Mr. Soundarya was finally felicitated by Lex Publicio, a Bhubaneswar-based law firm, here on Monday, he said it would be difficult to move ahead without support. Recently, Odia sprinter Dutee Chand was awarded ₹ 3 crore for her double silver in the Asian Games, while four members of the Indian women hockey team were given ₹1 crore each for coming second.last_img read more
