Craig - you posted 'the three ugly sisters' right? (the three ugly sisters are the Qantas744s that are powered by the GE engines - they got there name because of the GE engines instead of the normal RR engines)

No sir that wasnt me - havent even seen it - but I will be checking it out now!

But you are right about the engines! QF brought them off Asiana and Malaysia (1 and 2 respectively).

Hi, It's good to see you finally made it to the forum. I enjoy your pictures, they are some of the few on this site that are of good size and quality for use as my desktops. Although my wife gets irritated about seeing 747's on the computer screen, I don't.
Keep up the good work,

P.S. Sydney is a beautifull place, I was there last July and thouroughly enjoyed it!

Welcome to the forum. It looks like we share a common name!

Glad to have you aboard. I was in Sydney about 6 years ago and loved it. I was also in Perth, Darwin, and Ayers Rock. I didn't like the gnats in the last two places. A lot of people were wearing bug masks over their heads. But I hope to go back to Australia to see some other parts.
