For some reason, it seems that November is connected closely with men growing facial hair. A few years back the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia started promoting Movember with men growing mustaches to support prostate cancer research. Think of it as a pink ribbon to support breast cancer, but involving hair.

Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce is a survivor of prostate cancer and obviously the company has a special motivation for this. “As a survivor of prostate cancer, I am passionate about bringing greater awareness to men who are most at risk,” Joyce stated in a press release.

A 737 is not the only Qantas property to get the hairy treatment. A giant moustache has also been installed on the exterior of Sydney Qantas Domestic Airport, Terminal 3.

Just letting you know, Google is reporting your site as an attack site…it stopped me from coming to it initially…I trust your site so I went ahead and ignored the warning. Maybe something worth checking out!

Thanks Nathan,

I have been having issues with the site, but looks like Google keeps taking their own ad-code as malware. I have re-sent for a review and should be fixed by tomorrow.
