Default Two months on.... Qantas 767-338ER Gemini200

About two months ago, Australia skies were not the same. On the 27th of December 2014, the Qantas 767-338ERs were retired from Qantas service and ultimately Australian Skies (the only 767 left is a 767-300ERF VH-EFR). The 767 being my favourite Aircraft (hence the Profile Picture) I decided to purchase the spectacular 767-338ER form the Gemini200 Line. when it arrived in the mail I almost had a heart attack. I once again saw the beauty that once graced Australian skies, and my heart. my first commercial flight was on a Ansett 767, so when the 767 left forever, a small piece of me did as well. I present the pinnacle of all my collection; the Gemini200 Qantas 767-338ER VH-OGP.

It's always great to have a model with sentimental meaning I would have to get mine custom made, a USAir old chrome livery B762. It was the first plane I ever flew on.

That model is a beauty, and yes the 767s are sorely missed but at least they've found a home with an overseas operator.

I miss the 767 so much, it's good to see I'm not the only one

I thought I'd heard through the grapevine that westjet was taking a couple of these old qantas planes.

The baton has been passed...I thought the Brits were the most passionate for this hobby and they were and still are for so many years, but after reading all the posts from all my Aussie friends down under, I think you all have taken the lead!

It's a great livery!

BTW, I need to make another trip to 17N to see the Twin Otter/s. Cool little airport!

Now we just have to lobby the diecast gods for a 1:200 767-200 Ansett "Shooting Stars" livery to complete the trio.

I noted that Collectable Aircraft Wings Australia had this model available for $55 yesterday. But not being entirely familiar with the airline, I backed out of the purchase.

Seeing now it's quite familiar amongst the Australian collectors I might now reconsider.

PS. Does anyone have a source where I can see the present and past liveries / airlines that have operated in Australia? Would be a great help to assist in which Australian models to purchase (if available).

Your best source is then click on Australian Airliner Histories & the site will bring up "The Australian Civial Aircraft Register" It's www.aussieairliners.org a great source for reference information. Aye Simon you just beat me to it
Cheers Steve
