In July 2020, Qantas retired the last remaining Boeing 747 aircraft from its fleet. The flight departed Sydney’s Kingsford Smith Airport and made its way across the Pacific Ocean, finally coming to rest in the massive aircraft boneyard in the Mojave Desert. It was a poignant moment for both Qantas and Australia as a nation – it signalled the end of an era. But every ending is also the beginning of something new, and as much as there was sadness surrounding that final flight, there was also a sense of optimism looking forward to the future – to the new adventures that lay ahead. Join us this week as we explore both the history of Qantas and the history of the iconic Boeing 747 and the impact it had on a nation.
