We’d like to welcome you to INQ, Crikey’s ambitious new inquiry journalism initiative. Starting June 24, INQ investigative reporting — lifting the rocks, connecting the dots, following the money trail and exposing misuse of power — will appear regularly in Crikey.
We look forward to sharing this exciting new phase with you.

A tiny aerodrome south of Sydney is getting an early model 707 to go with its Qantas 747

Australia's restored Super Constellation and its preserved Qantas 747-400 are about to be joined by a rarely seen Convair 440 at Albion Park
If Boeing becomes seized by the same passions that brought about the 707s, 727s, 767s and 747s, the start of its second century could make everyone happy
Boeing curates for the future a beautiful tiny aeroplane that pointed the way to air travel as its known today

It was inspiring yet troubling to read a very sharp interview about the late aviator Nancy-Bird Walton’s 100th anniversary in The Australian this morning.
As the first Dreamliner to appear, and eventually fly, 787 ZA001 is now a beautiful part of the history of flight, at Nagoya’s Centrair International Airport.
From the ground, and from the cockpit, the Qantas gifting of its first 747-400 to HARS, the Historical Aircraft Restoration Society at the tiny Illawarra Regional Airport at Albion Park looked sensational.
