Video of world’s largest black aircraft arriving in Auckland

Video of world’s largest black aircraft arriving in Auckland

Video footage is now available of Air New Zealand’s newest Boeing 777-300ER, the world’s largest commercially operated aircraft to be painted all black, touching down in New Zealand for the first time today at Auckland International Airport.

The aircraft’s all black paint job is overlaid with a design featuring New Zealand’s distinctive silver fern that extends across the rear of the aircraft up to its tail. The paint job was extremely complex requiring 14 expert painters at Boeing working in shifts 24 hours a day to get the job done. Painting of the aircraft is part of Air New Zealand’s sponsorship of the New Zealand Rugby Football Union and the World Champion All Blacks rugby team.
