Video: 50 years of QANTAS leadership in jet services

New video from QANTAS:

Australian travellers joined the jet-set era 50 years ago when QANTAS flight EM774 departed Sydney Airport at 3.35 pm on July 29, 1959, bound for Nadi, Honolulu and San Francisco. The sleek, silver and white fuselage of the Boeing 707 jet created history as QANTAS became the first airline in the world to operate commercial passenger jet services across the Pacific. QANTAS also was the first airline based outside the USA to operate the new passenger jet.
