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

Whilst helping to compile the list on the Sydney Airport Message board I was getting names from the aircraft configuration information onboard the aircraft. Not all have the name painted externally yet.
