FlightAware shows that the flight's duration from Honolulu to New York was a bit over 4.5 hours. Boy, I'd like to have seen that plane fly overhead  Wink.

Thats correct Qantas titles and the red Kangaroo were removed prior to departure from the tail (except from the rudder area)

A discussion the the jet in question can be followed here

Crikey, had no idea that Qf had 'immediate' plans to retire further 743's.... I knew EBU was in permanent storage.

Can someone definitely confirm that EBT has been retired? Are you sure it's not just receiving maintenance?

Is there a timetable to phase out the remaining -300's? If so, dates by rego would be of interest.



No matter how far you push the envelope, it will always remain Stationery.
