Qantas' VH-EBT

Our first 2014 installment of "HNL RareBirds Classic" takes us back to March 2005, with Qantas Airways' 747-338, VH-EBT "City of Wagga Wagga" (c/n 23222, l/n 602), as it taxies to Runway 26L on Taxiway RT as QFA4 to SYD.

VH-EBT was delivered to Qantas in November 1984. From March 1992 to March 1994, it was leased to Japan Airlines. It was acquired by Midair USA (Rome, NY) in June 2007, registered as N747ZZ, and stored. Sadly, in August 2008, N747ZZ was scrapped at Griffis AFB, Rome, NY [RME].
