How sad!
Why can't the state governments buy these Jumbo's from Qantas for their Fire Fighting purposes?
Have at least one stationed in each state capital' & train flying crews as required.
Oh, Hang-on, volunteer fighters are not as expensive, silly me!

Perfect shot

That is stunning! She'll always be the Queen of the Skies.
Nice shot. The Longreach a 400ER. I flew one from La to Melbourne and from Sydney to La. Sad to see them go.

Final flare on a flight to the boneyard. Good picture. Sad day. Wonder if Qantas will retire the 'Spirit of Australia' aircraft name? Perhaps it will transfer to the replacement model? Hopefully.

Fabulous shot! The pilot flying obviously having a good time with the airplane - just beautiful!
One of the best - and perhaps saddest pictures ever of the 747. Excellent capture.
