‘This is not Singapore…….!”

We were two of the thousands of people who watched the first Qantas 747-400, VH-OJA land at Illawarra Airport a couple of weeks ago. The jumbo took 9 minutes to make the trip from Sydney. Captain Greg Matthews executed a flawless landing with runway room to spare. A very excited crowd welcomed the giant to her new home. OJA is now parked pernamently in front of the  Historical Aircraft Restoration Society (HARS) hangar complex. She will be on public display every month.   Kirsten x
