Should that not be QANTAS?

Hehehe Isn't that un unwritten rule of all online forums? The person that corrects someone with grammar or spelling will themselves make an error in the correction? :lol:

Nice shots! May I ask what lens was used? I see you have a 70-200 f4L, is this it?

DaleP, Sorry to break your unwritten rule, but it hasn't been QANTAS for many decades. This is the correct way as I said first of all. See the bottom of this pic......

And finally a photo of my steed!

So you're a 767 jockey? Nice! I love those planes, would love to fly them one day. By the time i'm there though, they'll all be replaced with the gumby looking 787's...

I like 767's too but once you travel on one like every summer it sucks :P . Nah, I don't mind it but it's just annoying not to be on the mighty GE-90'ed 777-300ER. Don't count on the 787's :P . But they will be nice too.

@ jetjoint : Great shots my fellow pilot friend! I always dreamt of spotting at SYD but now less.... Somehow it doesn't excite me that much. EHAM is something!

It is still an acronym, so all capitals is still the correct use (which I notice is still used at the top of the QANTAS website, which you trimmed off). Just because the IT/marketing/stationar​y guys ignore correct use is of little consequence.

Mind you, if we really wanted to be technical about it, we should be typing Q.A.N.T.A.S. ;)

I think you have it the wrong way around. The big banner at the top of the website is marketing. The name at the bottom is the official company name. It is NOT an acronym. It used to be, but as I said it hasn't stood for Queensland And Northern Territory Aerial Services for many decades. The name was officially changed to Qantas in 1967. This is from the history section on their website.

Yep, love the 767! Great machine and fun to fly. Can't wait for the 787 though. It is going to be a fantastic jet.

Hey to us old aviation buffs to will always be Qantas as in "Queensland And Northern Terrority Aerial Services" I could without a hesitation of doubt say if you wanted as an individual to register Queensland And Northern Terrority Aerial Services" you would find that todays so called Qantas Airways Limited hold the rights to it still!
