Default The end of B767's in Australia

At the end of 2014 the last B767-300 aircraft was retired by Qantas and there ending the commercial flying of this aircraft type in Australia. I've found some vids documenting the final days, including the last B767 to land in Brisbane, and then the last ever flight from Melbourne to Sydney in late December 2014. Hope you like? I found it interesting.

Thanks for posting the last flight by Qantas of the Boeing 767. I enjoyed listening to the ATC chatter as well. The 767 is a real workhorse in aviation having been in service for almost 40 years along with the 757. I suspect these old birds will remain flying for many more years elsewhere in the world.

When I was in the US this year I saw at least a couple in service, I think it might have been American Airlines from memory. So there are many still around. I know Qantas often sell on old planes to other airlines.
