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.

Forgotten little gem from 1970! Concerns the going's on at SFO, and an attempted bank heist via an ONA DC-9-30! The opening is the best part, where we are treated to one of the RARE Runway 1 landings at SFO. We get to see a Modern Air CV-990 (Ex-American Airlines) turn into a DC-8, B-52, & 707 before the final rollout after landing!
