Port Dou­glas fly­ing Wal­la­bies

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

WHEN Qan­tas un­veiled its B737 air­craft fea­tur­ing the Wal­la­bies winger Joe Roff scor­ing a try, the name of Port Dou­glas was also fea­tured.

When the B737-800 fleet were first de­liv­ered in 2002 they were named af­ter re­gional towns in­clud­ing Port Dou­glas, Broome, Ten­ter­field, Coffs Har­bour, Kather­ine and Mount Hotham.

Port Dou­glas was the air­craft cho­sen to sup­port the Wal­la­bies in their up­com­ing cam­paign to take on the Bri­tish and Ir­ish Lions in June and July when they tour Aus­tralia.

When vis­it­ing the air­port do not for­get to check and see if the Wal­la­bies plane is around and say hi to Port Dou­glas.
