QFM 707 Project Patron, Dr Ron Yates, clearly enjoying the sight of VH-XBA flying over Longreach. Forty-nine years earlier, as the first aeronautical engineer employed by Qantas, he had been stationed at Boeing in Seattle where he supervised the purchase and construction of this very same aeroplane. Also enjoying the significance of the moment are QFM Chairman, Warwick Tainton (wearing a hat) and former Qantas Flight Service Director, Stephen Berry. Photo: Norman King (NK-302)
