A fond farewell to the last Qantas 747

The 747 left behind a message in the sky for keen watchers.(Image Flightradar24) Flight QF7474 flew out from Sydney Airport this afternoon and provided entertainment to hundreds of plane spotters assembled at Albion Park as the aircraft flew south over the airfield before heading north to scribe this design seen by users of the Flight Radar 24 App. The jumbo will now be retired in the Mojave Desert in the United States.
