Beginning of the end for Qantas Roller 767s
Looking rather well used, former Qantas 767-300ER VH-ZXB departed Sydney on December 11 bound for Roswell, New Mexico, where it will go into storage.
ZXB was delivered to Qantas on the airline’s 80th anniversary on November 16, 2000, initially on lease from British Airways at the height of commercial and operational co-operation between the two airlines. It is the first of the seven Rolls-Royce RB211 powered 767s in the Qantas fleet to be retired. Qantas subsequently purchased all seven 767s from BA outright.
