Outback Queensland’s Qantas Founders Museum has embarked on an ambitious project to create a unique night time experience.
A sound and light show, projected on the fuselage of the iconic Boeing 747, Boeing 707 and Super Constellation aircraft and an 8072m2 roof will enable visitors to learn about the history of Outback Queensland Qantas in an unforgettable way.
Qantas Founders Museum tells the story of Australia’s aviation pioneers who established Qantas, Australia’s national airline, at the site in Longreach, Outback Queensland in 1920. Today’s visitors can experience all the Museum has to offer, including the unique wing walk on the Boeing 747 and 707 and much more with The ‘Spirit of Australia’ Platinum Tour.
In May 2020, when the project is complete, Qantas Founders Museum CEO Tony Martin says “The Longreach Light and Sound Show will provide visitors with a once-in-a-lifetime night time experience to learn about our nation’s aviation pioneering history, told through images projected onto the fuselages of the original Qantas Boeing 747, 707 and Super Constellation aircraft and the 8072m2 roof with surround sound system.”
The project has been facilitated via funding from the Queensland Government and will be complete in time for the Qantas Airways Centenary celebrations in May 2020.
