First 747 to land at SYD

It was a cold windy rainy day in the early 70's

I had never seen a Jumbo land but it was clear he was landing LONG!

So long he ran off end of runway and nearly got in a fight with airport fuel lines!

I think USA pilot was given a ticket home.

Anyone have any additional info or an old photo from Sydney herald.

PS now live in the land of Boeing namely Seattle.
