This extended clip filmed by Henry Tenby of AirlineTV.net shows the USAF B-52 Stratofortress arriving at the 2007 Abbotsford Airshow. Footage includes a flypast, landing, and extended taxi footage. The Boeing B-52 engine sounds are music to the ears! This B-52 was built in 1961.
Qantas restored Boeing 707 VH-EBA comes home to the birthplace of Qantas at Longreach, on 10th June 2007. This was the first 707 delivered to Qantas in 1959, and was restored in the UK and flown from Southend, UK back to Australia in late 2006. Sadly, this classic jetliner will not fly anymore now that it has permanently retired to Longreach.
