Not many know that Qantas leased a single 747-100 in the late 80s, VH-EEI, a former American Airlines aircraft. It seems to have been quite a troublesome bird which spend much time in maintenance. 1988/89 it was sub-leased to Air Pacific, 1990 rr. EI-CAI and shortly afterwards went to Virgin Atlantic where it spend another 10 busy years.
There are no photos existing of this aircraft wearing QF livery though about 1 year of its lease it was not operated by Air Pacific. That leads me to ask if it was ever painted in Qantas colours?
