From Dull Skies to Sunshine

From Dull Skies to Sunshine ☀️

During the Australiasian Flyout, I flew the 2 hour leg from Melbourne to the Sunshine Coast, in the Jetstar A320. The weather in Melbourne was quite rough and turbulent, which made for an interesting departure. The views on descent were stunning, and if you want an interesting route to fly I definitely recommend this one.

Another Qantas A380 rotates on Runway 34, as a Cathay Pacific 777-300ER makes it way to the Runway threshold.

After this stage, the flight was pretty uneventful. The next pictures all all during descent.

Thanks everyone!

Great pictures. Your title really is the case here in Kuala Lumpur. Haze is crazy and we only have a visibility of 500m or so.

Beautiful pictures @Kacey! I love number 6! Keep it up!

The 4th picture is so zoomed in that it looks like you had a near miss with the rotating A380
