All Australian aircraft stored due to Covid 19 all in one thread
Post the aircraft rego, location and airline in this thread. This way we can keep track of all the aircraft in storage all in one place.

Aus Aviation has an update:


Qantas and Jetstar have pulled roughly 150 aircraft from service, which will be spread between short-term storage facilities located at airports in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth, and Australia’s only long-term facility in Alice Springs.

Around 50 of the planes are set for Victoria’s Avalon Airport, with another 24 parking up at Sydney (including most of Qantas’ 12-strong fleet of A380s).

Qantas will relocate about a team of 30 engineers to Avalon this week to maintain the aircraft during grounding.*
