“Greetings from Seattle!!

“Iva and Paul were present with their good friend, William Barton, to perform at the unveiling of the new Qantas DreamLiner named Great Southern Land.

“It is an honour to have the first of the DreamLiners named after Iva’s song. Iva and the band thank Qantas and the Australian public for choosing the name”.
