ANOTHER Qantas 747 Bites The Dust | Farewell VH-OEB | Melbourne Airport Plane Spotting

Last weekend saw the retirement of Qantas' former oldest Boeing 747 in their fleet, VH-OEB. This aircraft is their only 747-400 powered by General Electric's CF6s and is an ex Asiana aircraft. Its final commercial flight was QF73 to San Francisco on June the 2nd and the aircraft now is parked at LAX to be stripped of its titles and flown off to Victorville for its final resting place.

VH-OEB was a regular visitor to Melbourne Airport so featured here is an arrival and departure of the former Qantas bird from two popular filming locations.

Farewell, OEB. Thank you for serving under the Spirit of Australia!
