Call me crazy, I probably am. Due to its location, Sydney’s rush hour is in the early morning. I couldn’t fly all the way from North America and not experience that. So I asked my dad to wake up at 4:30 AM and drive down to the airport and miraculously, he agreed. After driving the hour or so to the airport from our hotel in Parramatta, we pulled up at Shep’s Mound.

One of the first departures of the day, Fiji sends the A330 on the morning flight. Sadly no A350, that comes later but we had things to do.
Some nice prop blur on this Dash 8.
United sends multiple Dreamliners to Sydney daily but this is the only one that arrives in golden light.
After arriving 34R this JAL decides to take a weird taxi route to presumably avoid other traffic, which allowed me to get this shot.
This is the aircraft I really woke up for - there’s not many places where you can still catch this beauty.
I have seen an Etihad 77W on probably more than 10 occasions and still don’t have a single encounter with the new livery.
Don’t have much to say about this.
Sadly this one delayed long enough to not depart in golden hour anymore but it’s still a cool aircraft.
This one’s for my SVA pilots.
Which one was your favorite?
