Don't think AA name their planes.

Information comes from parts of different posts from this and other forums.
If I find anything really interesting then I copy and paste bits into a word file for later use.

From the web site mentioned above found some more information.

Sorry but I thought QF only bought 6 747 438ER's. Thats what their website says. So if they only have 6 which one doesn't exist? I think Phillip Island is not an ER as it is the only one out of alphabetical order from that list.

Yes only 6 747-438ERS, Looking through the database 747-400 VH-OEB is a 747-48E; so its the odd one out.

From one of the pictures remarks.
The aircraft has CF6-80C2B1F powerplants and was delivered on 24-06-1993 (Ex. HL7416).Ex-Asiana

When has QF started to name the ERs? I haven't seen one of them carrying a name yet.

Was it VH-QPF (Port Lincoln) that was involved in the incident last night at KIX?
