    Boeing 767

    It was Boeing's first wide-body twinjet and its first airliner with a two-crew glass cockpit. The aircraft has two turbofan engines, a conventional tail, and, for reduced aerodynamic drag, a supercritical wing design. The original 767-200 entered service in 1982, followed by the 767-300 in 1986 and the 767-400ER, an extended-range (ER) variant, in 2000. In November 1984, Qantas commenced service with six Boeing 747-338 aircraft with an extended upper deck. From 1985, Qantas ceased being an all Boeing 747 operator when the first of seven Boeing 767-238ERs entered the fleet. These were followed by the Boeing 767-300ER aircraft, with the first example delivered in August 1988; seven additional Boeing 767-336ERs were leased and subsequently purchased from British Airways and entering service from August 2000. Throughout 2014, Qantas's Boeing 767-300ER fleet was in the process of a phase-out with the last five operating commercial services operating on 27 December. For more details of the 767, click here.

    Boeing 727

    The 727 followed the 707, a quad-jet airliner, with which it shares its upper fuselage cross-section and cockpit design. The 727-100 first flew in February 1963 and entered service with Eastern Air Lines in February 1964; the stretched 727-200 flew in July 1967 and entered service with Northeast Airlines that December. The 727 became a mainstay of airlines' domestic route networks and was also used on short- and medium-range international routes. Passenger, freighter, and convertible versions of the 727 were built. A total of 1832 aircraft were built between 1962 and 1984. The 727 was operated in Australia by Ansett-ANA (later Ansett Airlines Australia and Ansett Australia) and TAA (later Australian Airlines and Qantas). For the full Boeing 727 history, click here.

    Boeing 737

    Originally developed as a shorter, lower-cost twin-engine airliner derived from the 707 and 727, the 737 has developed into a family of several passenger models with capacities from 85 to 215 passengers. The 737 is Boeing's only narrow-body airliner in production, with the 737 Next Generation (-700, -800, and -900ER), and the re-engined and updated 737 MAX variants. The 737 was originally envisioned in 1964. The initial 737-100 made its first flight in April 1967, and entered airline service in February 1968 with Lufthansa.[4][5] Next, the lengthened 737-200 entered service in April 1968. In the 1980s Boeing launched the longer 737-300, -400, and -500 variants (referred to as the Boeing 737 Classic series) featuring CFM56 turbofan engines and wing improvements. As of June 2019, a total of 10,557 Boeing 737's had been built. The Boeing 737-800 series is the most prolific airliner in Australia, with 153 aircraft on the Australian Aircraft Register, shared between Qantas an Virgin Australia, and 5 operated by Tiger Airways. The Boeing 737 airframe has been used for purposes other than an airliner, with the BBJ (Boeing Business Jet), the Boeing E-7A Wedgetail Airborne Early Warning and Control (AEWC) system and the Boeing P-8 Poseidon Multi-mission Maritime Aircraft. For full details of the 737 and it's variants, click here.
  4. The 787 was designed to be 20% more fuel-efficient than the Boeing 767, which it was intended to replace. Its variants seat 242 to 330 passengers in typical two-class seating configurations. It is the first airliner with an airframe constructed primarily of composite materials. The 787 Dreamliner's distinguishing features include mostly electrical flight systems, raked wingtips, and noise-reducing chevrons on its engine nacelles. The aircraft has suffered from several in-service problems related to its lithium-ion batteries, including fires on board during commercial service. After Boeing completed tests on a revised battery design, the FAA approved the revised design and lifted the grounding in April 2013; the 787 returned to passenger service later that month.

    Boeing 777

    It is the world's largest twinjet and has a typical seating capacity of 314 to 396 passengers, with a range of 5,240 to 8,555 nautical miles (9,704 to 15,844 km). Commonly referred to as the "Triple Seven", its distinguishing features include large-diameter turbofan engines, long raked wings, six wheels on each main landing gear, fully circular fuselage cross-section, and a blade-shaped tail cone. The 777 is produced in two fuselage lengths as of 2018. The original 777-200 variant entered commercial service in 1995, followed by the extended-range 777-200ER in 1997. The stretched 777-300, which is 33.25 ft (10.1 m) longer, followed in 1998. The initial 777-200, extended-range -200ER, and -300 versions are equipped with General Electric GE90, Pratt & Whitney PW4000, or Rolls-Royce Trent 800 engines. They have since been collectively referred to as 777 Classics. For full details on the Triple Seven, click here. One of the most infamous incidents in aviation history was the disappearance of Malaysian Airlines flight MH370. The two photos below were taken on earlier visits by that aircraft to Melbourne.
  6. The first wide-body airplane produced, it was the first plane dubbed a "Jumbo Jet". Its distinctive hump upper deck along the forward part of the aircraft has made it one of the most recognizable aircraft. First flown commercially in 1970, the 747 held the passenger capacity record for 37 years. The quadjet 747 uses a double-deck configuration for part of its length and is available in passenger, freighter, and other versions. Boeing designed the 747's hump-like upper deck to serve as a first-class lounge or extra seating, and to allow the aircraft to be easily converted to a cargo carrier by removing seats and installing a front cargo door. QANTAS has operated a total of 65 Boeing 747's with 7 still in service. These are scheduled to be retired by 2021, to be replaced by Boeing 787 Dreamliners.
