ZB280 Qantas 787-9 line 1019 VH-ZNL was moved to the 45-01 12th March for a repaint.
Other than the nose job, it is reportedly defective paint on the wing upper surfaces.

Paine Field Blog on 18th shows VH-ZNM "ZB281 Qantas 787-9 line 1035 on the flightline for EME in-tank inspections. Goes to the paint hangar May 1 for a repaint."

Since ZNL went in for repaint between 12 and 28 March & delivery is expected 28 April, seems we can't expect delivery of ZNM until late May at earliest. No sign of ZNN exiting the factory yet.

ZNL had another test flight.

Based on the duration it may of been a Customer Acceptance Flight

ZNL had another CA Flight yesterday.

Which normally means that QF found something that they like on the first CAF.

Does anyone know why ZNC is positioning to Busan from Melbourne as QF6047?

Maybe to have paint? I don’t know if ZNC is the same but ZND has some serious paint defects on the wings
