After nearly 19 years of operations for Qantas, the Boeing 747-400 named “Fraser Island” went into the well-deserved retirement. The aircraft was ferried from Los Angeles to the Mojave Desert on Tuesday.

The Qantas 747 fleet is down to only nine Boeing 747-400s
Qantas is currently in the process of modernizing its fleet. The Boeing 747-400s are being replaced by fuel-efficient Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft, which are operating ultra long-haul flights. For example, the airline has recently started its non-stop service between Perth and London-Heathrow.
