Farewell to The Queen!

Hello, IFC,

Recently, Qantas retired the final ever commercial 747.

To thank the old workhorse for it’s 49 years of service, I took these shots dedicated to the queen.

These were taken at Ayer’s Rock (Uluru) and Sydney on Solo in the Qantas 747-400.


The queen roaring down the runway.

The Queen takes to the skies!

A very loud Rotaté

A moonshot and a sunshot!

Finally, the good old Roo kissing goodbye to the moon before flying over to Roswell to die.

Thank you!

Beautiful pictures. Long live the Queen!

I could be 100% wrong but I think it reached 50 years a year or two ago. Maybe I’m wrong though 🤷‍♂️
