Today marks one hundred years since Qantas was founded in the Australian outback and to celebrate, the Aussie airline will complete a low-level flyover in Sydney.
On 16 November 1920, two veterans of the Australian Flying Corps, Hudson Fysh and Paul McGinness, together with local grazier Fergus McMaster, founded what would later become the national carrier.
The Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services initially focussed on carrying mail between outback towns.
By the 1930’s Qantas was flying passengers to Singapore.
Qantas is the oldest continuously-operating airline in the world and the only one that (normally) flies to every single inhabited continent on earth.
