HARS eagerly awaits the delivery of City of Canberra, a Boeing 747-438 (VH-OJA). She is expected to arrive at Illawarra Regional Airport at 07:47 on Sunday 8 March. VH-OJA is scheduled to depart Sydney at 07:30 for the short flight. We understand that she will fly down the coast at a relatively low altitude, turn right between Wollongong and Port Kembla (probably over the top of the harbour and the steelworks), then turn left at West Dapto to line up on runway 16/34.
QANTAS have provided the following flight details:
If you are planning to view the landing then be aware that a number of restrictions and road closures will be in place for the expected time of landing.
