Hello there Mario! First of all, congratulations for your photo, despite of the sad scene that is a 777 with an engine missing, this airliner is always a beauty and a impressive bird! We all hope to see she flying again as soon as possible! Well, about the 75th anniversary sticker, you saw it at the PP-VRB, also named as "Ruben Berta". It is still wearing the big blue 75 sticker by the front door. Maybe, we could see a big 80 next year on the whole Varig´s fleet, celebrating not only the 80th anniversary, but also a new life for the most beloved Airline of Brazil..

Hello Mario. Adding to what Haroldo wrote, Varig didn´t pay the engine lessor for a couple of months due to its critical financial situation. In response, they simply removed it from the plane, as you can see only one is missing. Today a new auction was approved as a second attempt to sell the company. Sad situation, I think.
