People get emotional about aircraft and the looming retirement from the Qantas fleet of the workhorse Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet has got a few people a bit teary, so  Qantas is running three one-hour  flights of nostalgia for aviation buffs and customers. The 747 has been serving Qantas since 1971 and is a true icon of Australian skies. Tickets go on sale July 8, cost $400 in economy and $747 for business class. The final 747-400 in the fleet will depart Sydney for its last flight on 22 July as QF7474. Destination unclear.
