Note: I was very glad to see this great aircraft at SYD during my trip. After visiting Japan about 2 months prior i was dissapointed i did not see one of the "Resocha" scheme aircraft. Here she is though in all her flowery glory!...
Note: A nice old shot from my archives here, the great looking 747-200 taxis out at SYD to depart in wonderful weather. I love the wingletless wing tips and the chrome engine cowls on this old bird! Looks great in the new Jal livery though....

Note: A little Rex Saab 340 taxis out to depart SYD to Merimbula. I know this as this is the plane that my dad flew down to Merimbula that day. We arrived on EK from BKK and then i stayed in SYD and he left down to see a friend in Merimbula....

Note: BA Jumbo starts her takeoff roll with the Sydney skyline in the background. This shot was grabbed during a cloudy late afternoon shooting session at the beach when the sun made a very brief appearance! Great stuff! (1dmkii/70-200F2.8LIS)
Note: The beach at SYD is a lovely place to shoot from. Here we have a BA 744 departing off for its long trip back to the UK via Asia. Was a great way to end a day shooting! The dark clouds on both sides of the frame look brilliant!...
Note: The large lumbering 744 Freighter lifts off and departs carrying a freight unknown to me. Looked great departing into such great weather! This was the sort of weather I'd come to SYD for! (1dmkii/120-300F2.8EX)
