Thanks Grahame. After asking the question I realised I could check FR to see what had been happening and then probably work it out.

Qantas Freight B767-300 VH-EFR departed Sydney on Runway 25 during the strong westerlies yesterday afternoon, heading for Auckland, then Christchurch and Brisbane. VH-EFR will undergo maintenance in Brisbane, so her replacement arrived in Sydney this morning from Honolulu. Polar Cargo (DHL) B767-300 N647GT will operate the same services as VH-EFR on behalf of Qantas.

N647GT originally operated with KLM from 1996 to 2006, then with Ethiopian Airways from 2006, until converted to a freighter by Israel Aerospace Industries (Bedek Aircraft Group Division) in 2015, with code BDSF being used.

Looks like I flew on her back in 2001, Amsterdam - London.

Was the cheapest option I could find to experience flying on the 767, and probably close to the shortest possible experience, too.

Flew business class and was served a persion bread with scrambled eggs, smoked salmon, chives and dill. Amazing stuff...
