Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Qantas Flight 1 (QF1, QFA1) is the flight number of the flagship Sydney to London route of Australia's Qantas Airways which goes via Bangkok. On 23 September 1999 a Boeing 747-438 jumbo jet overran the runway while landing in heavy rain for a stop over in Bangkok, causing the most serious incident in the airline's history of jet operations. Qantas flights between London and Sydney, known as the "Kangaroo Route", make the journey in two "hops" with an intermediate landing at either Bangkok, Singapore or Hong Kong for refuelling. This flight began in Sydney earlier that day at 1645 local time, and after more than eight hours flying was approaching Bangkok International Airport at 2245 local time. During the approach to Bangkok the weather conditions deteriorated significantly, from 8 km visibility half an hour before landing to 750 m at the time of landing. The flight crew observed a storm cloud over the airport and ground reports were that it was raining heavily. However these conditions were common at Bangkok.
