Bye Bye OEB, did GE buy her for the engines?

I see OEG has been busy with charter work into ROK

New series Inside Mighty Machines

An episode called "Jumbo Jet" shows the breakup of the 747 at a MS facility.

This may be the final home of VH-OEB

Pretty sure Tupelo is her final destination, previous Air Pacific jumbos have been dismantled there including the former VH- ANA

Yep, she went to Tupelo, and cruised there at FL450.

Looking at the QANTAS timetable into mid 2020 the last flights of 744s on various routes and other 744 services are:

The last 744 service to HNL departs SYD on Wednesday 28/8/19.
The last 744 service to SFO departs SYD on Tuesday 3/12/19.
QANTAS will operate a 20 day around the world 744 charter from 30/9/19 to 19/10/19.
They will also operate 744 services to YVR from 12/12/19 to 25/1/20 and from 25/6/20 to 30/7/20 ex SYD.
There are also four one-off Antarctic flights between November, 2019 and February, 2020 coupled with return domestic re-positioning 744 services to various cities in order to operate these flights.
The last 744 service to SCL departs SYD on Tuesday 23/6/20.

This leaves services to JNB and HND as the only regular 744 flights until replaced by 789s or other aircraft in late 2020.
