Dang....the hangar roof was too low for the tail...that's a rarity

A visitor from Australia posted Sun April 11, 2010:
Like the previous poster in 2007, I've only flown once on the SP, and it was also from CGK to SYD in 2001, and we made up time after the late departure from Jakarta. Perhaps it was the same flight in 2001?

A visitor from Australia posted Sun November 22, 2009:
The old Ford Falcon being driven on the tarmac is almost as rare as an -SP nowadays !!

Excellent photo, showing Qantas old colors.

A visitor from Australia posted Mon August 20, 2007:
Nice photo which captures a different era. The winged kangaroo is a distant memory now. I only flew on a QF 747SP once, from CGK to SYD in 2001, but was grateful for its 'pocket rocket' performance which helped to make up the time after a very late departure.

Great photo to remember the old

Excellent shot! Very rare indeed. I have been very fortunate to have flown one the Qantas 747SPs. Haha check out the Ford Falcon! Now that's also a rare site these days.
