Default Qantas Boeing 707

This pic was posted recently, and I got this info from our new opaper
regarding this aircraft













An Australian aviation icon will return today 16th December, 47 years after
it first arrived



The first Qantas Boeing 707, the City of Canberra was delivered in 1959 and
will return to Sydney after being out of commission for four years and
restoration by current and retired Qantas engineers in London



Believed to be the oldest 707 flying, its final long haul has been across
the Atlantic to the US and on to Fiji before it goes to Sydney and then the
Qantas Founders Museum at Longreach in Queensland. It was also the first
commercial passenger jet exported from the US
