    It also appears in the Sunday Mail today so it must be News Limited wide. Fantastic poster- I love the image of the A380 on top of the "little" aircraft (no idea what it is :oops: ) over the desert. I think it really sells the A380 to the general public.

    Yeah - also in the Sunday Times. Bit of a waste over here considering we're unlikely to be able to board the beast here for quite a few years. After all, we don't even get International 747's :(

    Any scans of the poster around? For those of us sat in a hotel in China without access to Oz papers?

    Avro 504K

    The "little" aircraft is Queensland & Northern Territories Aerial Service Co Ltd’s first aircraft, a Avro 504K, just like the replica in the SYD. However the Avro does not have a shadow, unlike it big brother. Amazing what can be done on a computer.

    A bit large to scan. Poster is 745 mm x 505 mm double sided. I can scan A3 size on a good printer - scanner at work, but would not get all the image

    Thanks for that. I guess the lack of shadow on the little one is because the A380 is blotting out the sun.

    Looks like August is the "confirmed" delivery date. I really am looking forward to this - just wish it was July - that's when my RTW award is ;)

    Looks like I need ot get next job lined up quick smart :)

    EDIT

    Just noticed for the first time that they are serving Dom in the First class suite... never seen that in F...

    Also the F suite looks like someone's library almost - kind of weird looking ...

    Your current job doesn't provide enough opportunity for travel?

    I think he means his next client for his current job, atleast i hope so , too much travel makes you crazy i think ;) Start doing silly things like status runs :D

    I like the look of the premium econ, if only it will be reasonably priced like the BA product.... wishful thinking i think.

    For the last 3-4 hours I have been looking at status runs and more opportunities to fly to new destinations. I am going crazy with routes, flight times and airfares....

    Yes BA World Traveller Plus is good value for money compared to WHY airfares on the route. I think I will try out WT+ on the 747 BKK-SYD for my next return trip. It is a similar price to SIN-SYD on the 777.

    BTW I will be in SIN late Saturday night 8 December and leaving around lunchtime Sunday 9 December. Let me know if you want to have a drink Saturday night or brunch on Sunday.

    Oh, how I can relate to that JohnK. Since I really discovered this site in April I've gone absolutely nuts. I'm:
    • Attending a FT AGM
    • Attending a FT do
    • Am educated and seriously considering a YUPP
    • Am go to BNE via BNE and SYD for brekky in the FLounge
    • Am going to LAX via SYD instead of direct
    • Am doing a pointless trip to CBR because fares were cheap (via SYD of course) :oops:
    • Not to mention becoming the person to speak to in the office if someone is planning flights for holidays (I even helped one of the Partners PA's to find F availability leaving the next day to London on Oneworld (I deserve a bonus for that one, can't imagine him in whY (it would be like Simongr on a LCC in a middle seat:!: :shock: :!: ))
    • Am considering a milk run to CNS
    • Don't want to consider JQ or DJ to HBA for the do
    • Am saving hard core for a DONE4 and YUPP next year.
    • Oneworld timetables has become my best friend
    But I love it and wouldn't have it any other way. Maybe I should have considered being a TA! :D

    Oh, and I want to hang the QF poster on the wall!

    My current role was designed to be a two year role and then something else "in the business". In addition to my current role I took on some global responsibility that I committed to doing until Feb next year. I am currently doing some work that is about 3-4 years junior to my skillset so need a greater challenge.

    I am liaising with my boss to work out with him if there is a role in the business for me (there would be one in New York and potentially HKG but moving isn't really an option) and if not I need to explore roles outside of the business - with the help of the business - that could be a slow process so needs to be started soonish.

    I want mor FREQUENT travel and less LONG-TERM travel (the current 3 1/2 weeks away is not a workable frequent event) - ideally a job that got me up to HKG for a week a month and new York for two sets of a week per year would be ideal ;)

    I find myself doing things I would never have contemplated in the past. It is an addiction, sickness, that can take hold of your life. No different to smoking, slot machines or other forms of gambling.

    I have attended the last 2 Ozfests and will probably be in HBA next year even though I do not agree with the venue chosen.

    I have not been to any FT AGMs yet, but may attend the next one. I do not like giving up my round of golf on Saturday mornings.

    I am going to the Kiwi Mainland Do in Queenstown in November with a routing of SYD-AKL-CHC-ZQN and then returning ZQN-CHC-AKL-WLG-SYD. Don't ask! I have 2 nights in CHC and 2 nights in ZQN and I am looking at ways of maximising the mattress stays as well.

    I am contemplating various status runs in Australia and have started planning the next RTW for August next year.

    BTW I haven't worked since May with no real job prospects in the near future. Who is going to fund this madness?

    I wouldn't go that far.

    Right, thanks for the support boys. Have a feeling I wouldn't get away with that anyway. Reminds me a bit of the ad where the guy takes the girl back to his room decked out in Star Wars stuff and she gives this evil cackle and leaves.

    wallacej, I hope we're going to see you at either the FT AGM or OzFest. Or haven't you swinged to the "other" side yet. ;)
