CX flies a 747-400 into Adelaide every Sunday morning arriving at 9:05 am as CX105 from HKG. Then at about 10:30am this aircraft departs for Melbourne and makes a stopover, which is only a 1 hour flight, on it's way to HKG.

British Airways operates daily on the LHR-BAH-DOH using the B747-400 since late May, before it was on the B777. The distance on BAH-DOH is only 79nm. Air India used to operate this route with a 747-200 too and other large widebodies like the A340 operate(d) on the route too.

I hope the question relates to 747 cargo flights as well. Anyway these are some of the shortest flights I have flown on 747 cargo flights. All of them has block times of 1 hr +/- 5 minutes and typical flight times of around 35-40 minutes.
Other short sectors with block time around 1 hr 20-30 ninutes include

PEN-KUL on MASKargo B742 and Air Atlanta Icelandic B742Fs ops for MAS could be one of the shortest with real flying time only about 35-40 mins. MAS used to operate B744s on this route on certain days but as of now it is only on demand for the B744 but then in November we would have KUL-PEN-LHR.
Other carriers flying KUL-PEN with a B747 includes Korean Air Cargo and China Airlines Cargo.

One of the shortest that I know of is BON-CUR flight time 25 minutes KLM 747 in the old days 747 could not go fully loaded to AMS so the flights where routed to CUR from BON and SXM. I think we had this tread before.
