Hmmm, I flew London-Sydney on a QF 747-400 in the very last row (row 77 on
the plane I was on) and I have to say, I was surprised by the lack of tail
wag.  I had heard that it was pronounced, but it wasn't evident at all.  I
actually thought (on a non-smoking a/c!) that it was a great seat to be in,
as there was tons of room :-)
