Default Qantas to celebrate its centenary with flyover

I have information that a TRA ( Temporary Restricted Area) is proposed to enable a flyover of the ex QF 747-400 at Shellharbour Airport by a QF B787 on the 16Th November . The B787 will depart SYD at 18:30 hrs local and fly down the coast before making two passes over Shellharbour Airport .

FlightAware has Qantas 787-9 VH-ZNJ which carries the Centenary livery, due to position from Brisbane to Sydney as QF6116 late this afternoon, presumably for this flight.

Yes, ZNJ is flying this flight. I heard ATC say "goodluck for the anniversary flight" when ZNJ was making a runway change from 16R to 34L.

Also, When ZNJ departs at 18:10, it'll come back at 20:10.

Qantas celebrates centenary with release of 'very rare' Empire flying boat film reel

The almost-forgotten travel era of the Qantas Empire flying boats has been brought back to life with the discovery of a never-before-released film reel dating back to the 1930s.

The nine-minute colour film was uncovered inside a small tin at a Qantas storage base in Sydney, providing a detailed look at the once-popular water-based aircraft of a bygone era.

The unique footage has been digitised and released by Qantas in celebration of its centenary this week.

It captures two of the Short Empire flying boats on a journey from Darwin to Singapore via the former Dutch East Indies (modern-day Indonesia).

It also includes footage of the planes stopping in Surabaya, Batavia (now Jakarta) and Singapore in mid-1939, not long before war swept through the Asia Pacific.

Phil Vabre from the Civil Aviation Historical Society said the discovery of the colour footage was "very rare".

"I've only seen one other lot of colour footage of the Empire flying boats from that period.

"It's very, very rare indeed and it's very special to be able to see it."
