Sydney CBD office workers who glanced out the window at morning tea today faced something straight out of Hollywood - a low-flying large passenger plane being chased across the harbour by a fighter jet.
Fortunately, the incident was not an air force pursuit of a hijacked passenger flight, but a "farewell flight" for the defence force's Boeing 707 aircraft. The aircraft was being retired from service after 29 years, the department said. About 11am today, the B707 aircraft made its farewell flight, accompanied by a Hawk 127 lead-in fighter aircraft from which photos of the flight were taken, the department said.
