[4K] | Onboard QF56 Brisbane to Sydney | Qantas Boeing 747-400 VH-OJU | Landing Sydney Airport – Sydney Video

Brisbane to Sydney on Qantas Boeing 747-438 VH-OJU as QFA56.

In late August, I was made aware by various spotting groups that Qantas planned to operate Brisbane to Sydney and Sydney to Brisbane Boeing 747 positioning flights which were open for passengers to book on. The service is a continuation on from Los Angeles to Sydney via Brisbane. Most passengers disembarked in Brisbane but there were a few which continued onto Sydney accompanied by Domestic passengers. The flight departed from Gate 80 at the Brisbane International terminal taxiied out to Runway 19 for the HUUGO5 departure to Sydney. Flight time was just over an hour. Cruise altitude was 40,000ft and the crew were assigned Runway 16R for landing in Sydney. We were assigned to Gate 8 at Sydney’s international terminal but held on a taxiway for approximately 15-20 minutes while waiting for another aircraft to vacate the bay.

It was a great opportunity to fly on a Qantas Boeing 747 before they are retired in 2020. I spent my day spotting in Sydney so expect some compilations and videos. OJU is the third Qantas Boeing 747 I’ve flew on after OJT and OEI. I’ve rebooked on the 1/12/2018 service as well which will likely be my last ever Qantas Boeing 747 flight unless a farewell tour or additional domestic flights are planned.
