I think someone spent a lot of time playing with turn radii, and image size, so that they could find a scale that would work. I’d expect that it was a auto loaded FMC route, that had probably been tested many times in a sim. Bloody excellent.

Apologies - I expect this has been posted before, but I hadn't seen it; just in case:

The five Qantas 747s being retired early due to the COVID-19 crisis will not remain in the Mojave Desert indefinitely, after a buyer was found for the aircraft.

Although details of the sales have not been made public, Qantas 747 fleet captain Owen Weaver confirmed the iconic aeroplanes had been sold which he said “backed up the decision to retire them”.


Is the buyer known by anyone here?

That would be great. The ERs were an exceptionally nice variant of the 747. I’d expect them to end up as freighters.

Not to mention the airspace considerations
