    Qantas cheatline colour query

    Here its is - Seen at Melbourne 2nd May this year while waiting for the Cairns flight at stupid o'clock in the morning
  2. Hi - Have made my usual pilgrimage to see Hector, the ex RAF/ HeavyLift Short Belfast this weekend having been up in Far North Queensland. I previously posted some shots in 2016 but this was on PhotoBucket and they upset a lot of people. Bit of background- Cairns Airport went to court late 2016 as Hector's owner, Flying Tiger Oversize Cargo, apparently owed over AUS$100k in outstanding rental fees. I am not sure what the latest on that is but there are reports that work is being done on Hector to try and get it airworthy. It seems that the engines may have been run in March 2018. Maybe someone out there knows more? ( I keep expecting to see it in bits whenever I go up so its great to see Hector hanging in there) As of today - Hector cuts a lonely figure next to the Cairns Airport Fire Section Another view of Hector earlier today: A better view from 2016 Hector - a decade ago in 2008 Lastly, if you are interested, QANTAS have painted a 737 in retro livery complete with winged kangaroo on the tail Pinback

    Thanks for sharing Sven - I always have to take a second glance as the Dart nacelle is so similar to the HS 748
