***Update: VH-ZNB is now in final assembly! Expected early 2018.

Great news, the Qantas 787 has been fully revealed at the Boeing factory in Seattle! VH-ZNA, now known as “Great Southern Land” was presented to Qantas staff including Alan Joyce, the Qantas CEO. Once the 8 Dreamliners on order for Qantas have reached delivery stage in 2018, the final 5 747s remaining will be retired.

787 is my favorite aircraft. But for Qantas I think the 747’s suits them better. Kind of sad to see these 747’s go.

IMO, in the current environment, the 787s are a great investment for an airline that prides itself on safety and technical innovation and long distance routes. The 747s were the pinnacle of their time. But they have to go.

Did you just time out?

Sorry don’t know what you mean, but if I’m thinking right, you are asking if I ran out of fuel on the first try from Perth to London. If that’s the question no this is my first flight from Perth to London, I will have a full tank of fuel just in case of a hard head wind.

No grade 3, was grade 4 until my little brother snuck on my iPad and went full throttle on expert in a F 22 but yep just took of, it’s 9:35 for me now so will get to London at around 2 tomorrow arvo… all the graphics are on low to prevent overheating

Was that you though?
