Qantas Airways is celebrating its 95th anniversary  with a throwback to the early 1960s as the carrier unveils on Monday its new Retro Roo II livery design. The design recalls the airline’s Boeing 707 jets, which were in service from 1959 to 1961 and made Qantas the first airline to fly passenger jet services across the Pacific Ocean, with flights from Sydney to San Fransisco. Chosen from a selection of 12 different livery designs that the airline has had since its first aircraft in 1920, the retro design was this time painted on one of the airline’s Boeing 737 jets, making it Qantas’s second 737 aircraft to don the retro look after the Retro Roo I, which was launched last year in celebration of its 94th anniversary.
