Qantas and The Great War

logoSo what does Qantas have to due with one of the most maligned aircraft from The Great War?

Well according to Fokker Fodder by Paul Hare One of the two B.E.2es sold to Australia ended up with the registration G-AUBF and part of the Queensland and Northern Territories Aerial Service Company, or as it is now known Qantas. The aircraft cost Charles Knight £450.

There is more on the Qantas website.

I really enjoyed Fokker Fodder. If I have any complaints it is that it spends more time on the aircraft and little on the period in 1915.
