2013 Melbourne F1 Fly-by

Wed Mar 13, 2013 10:51 pm

I will be attending the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne tomorrow. Any idea on what plane will be conducting the fly-by. Will it be something new like an A380 or can we just expect the usual B744 VH-OEB with the F1 decals?

Thanks

I wouldn't expect anything at all tomorrow, from Qantas at least,

RAAF Roulettes will be in the air and the F/A-18 will likely do what in the event business we would call a "site survey"

Sat will see Roulettes and perhaps another F/A-18 "inspection"

Sunday, QF flyby could be a simple overflight by a sched flight or a "display" as seen last year, aircraft .. could be anything.

QF not being naming rights sponsor, who knows how committed they will be!!

A330-200 is confirmed.
It's all about the destination AND the journey.
