Qantas Boeing 747-438 VH-OJD msn 24481 will make its last revenue service and departure from Australian shores today as it operates QF15 to Los Angeles today. Arriving in from Sydney as QF6013 this morning, the aircraft was delivered to Qantas on 16/1/1990. After arrival into Los Angeles she will be flewn to Victorville, CA for storage until she is sold or scrapped. In her final years VH-OJD mainly operated the SYD-PER-SYD route with the occaisonal flight to Tokyo, Frankfurt and Singapore. This author flew on her about a year ago from SYD-PER arriving into the west in style. Lets hope she finds a new operator soon.
