If you are looking for photos of a specific aircraft type, use this menu. Please note that, due to space constraints, this menu includes only some of the more requested aircraft in our database.
If the aircraft you're searching for is not in this list, use the 'Keywords' field further down in the search menus.
Some menu selections include a generic aircraft model, as well as more specific variants of that airliner.
These variants are denoted by a - before the aircraft name.
Selecting 'Boeing 747,' for example, will show results featuring all Boeing 747 jetliners in our database, while selecting '- Boeing 747-200' will show all Boeing 747-200 variants in our database (Boeing 747-200, Boeing 747-212B, Boeing 747-283F, etc.)

Note: Finally managed to snap a photo of Emirates' special Los Angeles Dodgers livery despite it being painted a number of months ago. One of the nicest looking paint schemes going around! EK420 seen turning to line up with Runway 21 over the...
Note: Qantas' "New Roo" departing in the very last rays of the day to Auckland as QF111. As QF's A333s don't frequent Perth, we won't see much of this livery until it starts appearing on their 738s and A332s
Note: A large, close up view of Qantas' new livery. Some people hate it while others love it. Me personally, I love the little features such as the retro logo under the cockpit window along with the 'roo on the wingtip
Note: For the past year and a half, I have tried multiple times without success, to get a decent photo of A7-BAE, but it always seemed to allude me. So when I found out that it would be coming today, I had to put aside my year 12 studies for...
Note: Departing back to Auckland as NZ176. Unfortunately, NZE departed just after the end of the useful afternoon light. However, I was pretty happy to get the glowing horizon reflecting off the black fuselage.
Note: NZ177 preparing to be pushed back and towed to a standoff bay in preparation for its return flight to Auckland. Air New Zealand only recently added an additional direct service from Auckland with the 767, in conjunction to its daily 787-9...
Note: Being my ride home from Tokyo, I had to wait until the majority of the baggage and catering trucks had cleared before taking this shot and boarding the plane. Because of this, I was the last to board the huge jet
Note: Air New Zealand's 'All Blacks' 787 is definitely one of my favourite visitors to Perth and is seen here preparing to begin the long flight back to Auckland. The stunning livery looks even better at night with the purple mood lighting in...
