Photographer Craig Murray has sent us this great image of two of Qantas’s newly-retired Boeing 767-300ERs, VH-OGU and OGO, parked outside Qantas’s Hangar 3 at Brisbane Airport on Sunday, now devoid of their Qantas markings and kangaroo tail.

OGO and OGU were two of the five 767s operating on the type’s last day of passenger service with Qantas on December 27. OGO’s last revenue flight was QF524 from Sydney to Brisbane, OGU’s was QF530 Sydney-Brisbane.

    I assume they will come here to Alice Springs for storage like the last few retires.

    says:

    Being Boeings, there is always a good chance of them being resurrected with a cargo door. It is the advantage of fail-safe design that until someone actually puts a back hoe through the airframe it may fly again.

    Rumoured to be going to West-jet for their long distance startup….time will tell!

    says:

    Spoke to a Qantas engineer in Brisbane today and he said the 2 in Brisbane are being stripped of its IFE router systems to be reused in other Qantas aircraft. Once complete these will wait out at Alice Springs before heading to new owners.

    Notice how very many Bris/Perth/Bris “extra” flights Qantas is now having to put on with 737-8oo’s now that Qantas does not have the larger capacity aircraft in service.

  • Peter Brown

    says:

    Apparently Air Canada is looking for additional 767-300’s also according to rumours

  • John Harrison

    says:

    Sad to see the B767-338’s go, but time does march on. Interesting some one commented on Qantas “going backwards” and using B737-838’s on East Coast to Perth again. I had cause to check schedule’s the other day
    and was shocked to see nbr of B737 flights. It might have been because it was a week-end, not that should be an excuse. Come on Qantas management stop giving Jetstar all the good stuff, and look after Qantas and its passengers.
    I hope these B767’s maybe find new homes (airlines) and can fly on for a few more years.
