Melbourne - Hong Kong | Cathay A350 | IFATC at Home

Today I would like to share some clicks from the Melbourne to Hong Kong flight we flew yesterday; taking full advantage of the ATC provided at YMML as part of ‘IFATC at Home’.

The flight was approximately nine hours long, and some of the attendees included the likes of @ran, @Jennifer23 (she flew out from Adelaide to meet us at Hong Kong), @Axeno, and of course @Anthony_Vo!

Cue the shots…


^ The squad descended upon the very windy Melbourne Airport.



^ Waiting for our turn to depart as @Declan_O tries to get us up in the air with his Ground/Tower frequencies.



^ And we’re up! We leave behind metropolitan Melbourne, which is currently experiencing a second wave of COVID-19.




^ Of course no flight out of Australia is complete without a picture of the outback!



^ After a few hours, we say goodbye to Australia as we fly over Darwin in the Northern Territory.



^ Another few hours passed us by, where @ran got some much-needed sleep, and before we knew it, we were over Hong Kong!



^ On final, Runway 25L.



^ Let’s say it was a ‘firm’ landing…



^ Excuse our choice of parking location.


I hope you liked these photos, and are able to join us next time!
