Qantas flight QF73 landing at San Francsico

Filmed from inside the aircraft, this Qantas flight QF73 from Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport in Australia, landing at San Francisco International Airport, California in May 2017.

At that stage, Qantas was still flying Boeing 747-400 series Jumbo jets on the route, although those aircraft have all been retired now.

The flight crosses the Pacific Ocean from west to east and takes approximately 14 hours, depending on weather conditions.

It was a beautiful, sunny day so you get a good look at the California landscape that is south of San Francisco.

Qantas first began Sydney to San Francisco flights in 1954, when the planes had to make three stops to refuel.
