Qantas’ birthday


Picture credit: Qantas

Australian flag carrier Qantas was founded on this day in 1920. This picture is Qantas’s second office in Longreach, in 1921. Flight at the time focused on European news.

But I discovered this Qantas airline profile circa 1964. In 2003 Flight featured Australian airlines following the collapse of Ansett.

Famously Raymond Babbit, the autistic character in Rainman said that Qantas never crashed, so here is a feature on Qantas’ safety monopoly.

AirSpace has lots of Qantas images and last year we reported on how Qantas changed its livery.
