07AUG20 / 1000Z - Final Farewell to the Qantas 747! @ YSSY - KLAX


Final Farewell to the 747

The time has come, Qantas has retired it’s final 747. In it’s final send-off, the plane took off and did a flyover of the Harbour before heading down to the HARS Museum to say farewell to VH-OJA. After this, the plane headed off the East Coast and made the shape of the iconic Qantas Roo in the skies. It then began the long journey to LAX before heading to the final destination, Mojave Desert. And that is exactly what we will be doing this event! Join this once in a lifetime event, and help us send off the Queen of the Skies!
