                colourful "Shooting Star" corporate logo. The staff uniforms of this time by Adele and Peter Weiss are garments which incorporate stripes
                and arrows with the colors from the tail of the logo. A further update is introduced in 1988 with the A320 "Skystar" to Ansett's fleet.
                   In 1985       Introduces its new livery with the introduction of its first
