The Aviation Museum In Australia

Wed Aug 28, 2002 2:01 pm

I heard that there is one with a Qantas B 747-200 in it. Can anyone tell me where it is?

Thanks!

The Qantas B747-238, VH-EBQ, you refer to is still in service and will be retired by Qantas in the last week in October or early November.
It is being donated by the company to the Qantas Founders Museum, at Longreach in the state of Queensland. The aircraft is due to fly into Longreach from Sydney in early November. It will be on static outside display.

Will they allow us to get onboard the aircraft? If yes, when will this be available?

There is also the Ansett Museum in Hamilton, Victoria.

Where?

This may be a bit off-topic, if not off-topic. Does anyone have the Ansett 'Absolutely'advertisements? If yes, please send it to me through ICQ....... 58505564. Or simply post it on a link.


So do they allow us to get on that QF B 742? If yes, when will it be available?

Also, where is the Ansett Museum?

Hamilton is about 4 hours drive north East of Melbourne.

United Airline, I wrote where the AN museum is.

It is in Hamilton a 3.5 hours drive WEST of Melbourne. Hamilton is where Ansett first began, many, many years ago.

A 4 hour drive NE of Melbourne on the highways would basically place you out of the state!

Cheers,

Justin
