• Have been lucky and flown to Santiago and Jo'burg over the last 2 years both on the upper and lower decks. A great experience. Loved seat 1A on QF 63 to Jo'burg. A sad day in Qantas' aviation history.

  • As they say All Good things have to come to an end. The Queen of the Skies has more than lived up to it's reputation. The longevity of this particular aircraft confirms this and how much engineering and thought has gone into designing, building and keeping it running for over 50 years plus. Boein...
