In case any of you didn’t know, Qantas recently retired the last of their 747-400s. It was quite a sad day for 747 lovers (which, I assure you, there are a LOT of them), including myself. I truly loved the Queen of the Skies, and hence wanted to recreate the Aircraft’s final route, from LAX to Mojave Air and Space Graveyard.
Flight Time: 32 Min
Aircraft: 747-400 (Qantas Livery)
^ Recreating the Kangaroo Drawing the aircraft made upon its final departure (In real life, this one was actually made after takeoff in Sydney, butjustpretendokshhhhh)
^ Beginning the taxi to the aircraft’s last takeoff
^ The plane sails off into the skies one last time, and disappears from sight some time later
^ A really low cruise over the Sierra Nevada mountains, if only one could hear those roaring Rolls Royce engines!
^ The final landing at Mojave Graveyard. It’s an emotional moment.
Rest in Peace, dear 747. You made a mark that no other airliner could possible have done. I’m glad you’ve lived a fulfilling and airworthy life.
