Farewelling the last Qantas 747



Tribal Warrior


Tribal Warrior was asked to provide a dance troupe and master of ceremony at the Qantas send-off of its last 747 Jumbo Jet.


Lighting extremes – the nose of the Jumbo was in the hangar but its tail was in the harsh morning sunshine.

Capturing a mix of behind in the scenes and staged photography.

Tight security and restrictions as to where I could position myself.
