After 927,000 flights carrying nearly 168 million passengers in a 29-year career, Qantas has retired the Boeing 767 fleet from passenger service. The final 767 passenger revenue flight was the appropriately numbered QF 767 (re-numbered from QF 452 – QF 767 normally operates from Brisbane to Perth). Operated by VH-OGL, the flight departed Melbourne at 17:29 on Saturday 27th December and touched down at Sydney Airport at 18:57 after a series of scenic orbits over Sydney Harbour and the Sydney CBD. On 2nd January the retired Qantas 767-300ER VH-OGT departed Sydney for Alice Springs as QF 6160 where it will enter storage at the new Asia Pacific Aircraft Storage facility there at Alice Springs Airport. VH-OGT was one of five 767s operating on the type’s final day of passenger service with QANTAS on Saturday December 27.
