QF B747SP at Brisbane airport on 21,22 or 23 January 1998

Tue Mar 24, 2020 1:11 pm

I am wondering if anybody has some details about QF B747SP at Brisbane airport in late January 1998.

I was at Brisbane Airport to have about 1 hr to 1.5 hr transit flying QF from CGK to MEL on 21, 22 or 23 January 1998.

I remember seeing a QF 747SP as I was walking for THE transit to MEL. I am not sure whether it was the CGK -BNE or BNE-MEL I took or it was just another aircraft parked next to the QF aircraft I flew in.

I know it is a long shot as it has been over 22 years ago. A photograph would be superb, too.

Thank you everyone.

I remember recalling the 747SPs working QF19/20 ex-SYD to MNL & v.v (with a once a week service going via BNE) during 1998.
Not sure if it started in January 1998 or later that year.

The SP's were often subbed across the network as the 747/743/74L captains were all licensed on all 3 variants. Prior to 98 I non-reved numerous times SYD-BNE on QF51 and it was an SP- usually only 20pax on board before it filled up BNE-SIN.
