What a great drawing. Saw this myself earlier as well.

Also something I found intriguing was their flyover above Sydney. If they didn't make that right turn at the yellow arrow and continued left to finish the flyover, might be another drawing in the making...

British Airways also retired there 747s. It was such an iconic plane!
