Notes:

A Qantas 767-300 awaiting departure for Sydney. The marks on the nose are from the departure from Sydney the night before. They are caused by Bogong Moths. At this time of year they cause havoc in Sydney particularly with aircraft and have been known to cause airspeed indicator failures let alone obscuring visibility. This photo was taken 2 days after the last time the aircraft had been through Sydney. A few had worn off! I saw the aircraft the day before I flew it and it was worse then.
