Two more retired Qantas Boeing 767-300ERs have headed to Alice Springs to be placed into storage.
Without the flying kangaroo on the tail and any Qantas markings on the fuselage, VH-OGU departed Brisbane Airport in the early hours of Friday morning and landed at Alice Springs airport a little over two and a half hours later.
Two days earlier, on January 7, VH-OGM left from Sydney for Alice Springs and the Asia Pacific Aircraft Storage facility located alongside the airport.
The aircraft were among the five 767s operating on the type’s last day of passenger service with Qantas on December 27, with VH-OGO’s last revenue flight QF524 from Sydney to Brisbane and VH-OGM ending its career in Qantas colours as QF434 from Melbourne to Sydney.
Sister ship VH-OGO remained at Brisbane Airport and was expected to depart some time next week.
