VH-EAB wore this special "Have a Qantastic Christmas" livery for only a month. Qantas had already sold it to ITEL which had in turn leased it to Young Cargo. However, the delayed arrival of new 747-238B VH-EBN resulted in Qantas leasing it back. At the end of the lease, -EAB was quickly delivered to Young Cargo as OO-YCL. Photographer not known.
