[Finished] Qantas Virtual Presents: The Kangaroo Route! @ EGLL - 080400ZSEP18



image Celebrating 47 Years of the Qantas 747!

In September, 1971, the first Qantas 747 went into service and revolutionised Australian air travel. To celebrate the occasion, we will be flying the Kangaroo Route.
The Kangaroo Route was a flight done in a Qantas 747 in 1989, that flew direct from London to Sydney! You heard right - no stops, no breaks, a direct flight!
We will be trying to replicate this flight.

😭😭😭, wont be able to come. But it looks really fun though! I have to say though if I did come I would probably take me a few hours, not 10 minuets to copy that flight plan 🤣

You can copy and paste the flight plan into the app - you don’t have to do it manually (unless you really want to haha)

As a heads up, you forgot the “Z” after the time in your title according to the correct format :)

I’d love to try this, but 6:00am does seem just a bit too early
