    Qantas Longreach Question

    My sister and I have been arguing! Could someone please let me know about the Qantas Longreach - I thought it was the name of a type of plane - as in the 747-438 and that there were lots of them. She thinks it is the name on one particular plane. We once flew to the US on the Longreach and she says that's the only plane with that name on it. Who is right please

    Thanks - it's nice to get one up on her - I'll admit she usually knows more but then she's older

    Re: Qantas Longreach Question

    To puit it into perspective; "Longreach" is the name of a model of a Boeing 747 that Qantas use.

    Sort of like the difference between a Holden Commodore Executive and an Acclaim, even a Berlina.

    They all have individual names, cities, towns etc. One of them actually is called Longreach.
    Something big is about to happen.

    Yes the 747-438 are called the "Longreach"

    VH-OJI is also called Longreach (747-438).

    So you are both "right" in a sense!

    Cheers,

    Nick
