Photo Comment

VH-EAJ photographed ahead of its delivery flight. I was part of a media party invited to Everett for a briefing on the now forgotten Boeing 7J7 propfan project that coincided with the handover. We were then flown to Fiji on a regular Qantas flight (from LAX) to join VH-EAJ on the final leg of its delivery flight to Sydney which included a pass over its namesake city, Wollongong. Qantas would be the only operator of the aircraft, which flew into storage in 2003 and later scrapped.
