QANTAS Museum

Qantas was originally founded in Winton, but moved to Longreach soon thereafter.

There is a large QANTAS Museum at Longreach, and longreach is the resting place for one of the company's first Boeing 747's (in the pic).

I'm told that the landing strip in longreach is too short to land a 747 normally, so the landing of this one was touch and go...
