I reckon VH-OJQ might just be the next one to go. We will just have to wait and see.

I reckon you might be right on that one Fred.

It makes a bit of sense,especially with JNB now going to 3 class aircraft as well.

Noticed VH-OJH at the jet base yesterday devoid of titles and the roo painted out so tomorrow it will be gone.

I flew on OJH twice, once before the Bangkok incident and last flight was in 2004 QF5 to Singapore.

Why do all the new roo planes in the OJ series seem the get retired. Only OJM and OEB will be left with the new roo apart from the ER and the remaining birds in the OJS, OJT, OJU series. All the others are with the old livery.

Anthony, I think you are asking why they are retiring OJ series in New roo scheme?

If so, I can only think of out of all the 744s that have been retired so far, OJO is the only one that has been in new colour scheme, so I'm not sure what you mean.....

Luke, any idea what and when will follow OJQ? Hopefully,nothing for a while, I've had enough of this for now.

Cheers
Jim

If anyone can get a shot or two of OJH before she departs tomorrow,it would be great.

Unfortunately I'm working so I can't get there.

Tomorrow we lose one of the all time greats

Looks like OJH's flight to LAX is still planned for 3 Oct. QF6019 departing at 1230.

On a side note, OJM will be following behind as QF11. Probably sad to see another buddy gone.
