Default German Air Force A359 visits Canberra

A German Airforce A 359 landed at Canberra this afternoon after a non stop flight from Cologne/ Bonn . The flight time was 19hr 20 min and covered 9,276NM , which was a longer duration and distance than the QF non stop B787 flight from LHR to SYD .

Can we confirm the distance flown? Whilst the GAF flight was one minute longer, the QF presser has the B789 distance flown at 9578NM.

9275NM - https://flightaware.com/live/flight/GAF931

But the Virgin 777 flight from Paris to Brisbane was 9832NM. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/...600Z/LFPG/YBBN
