So about 45 minutes ago I went to a viewing point next to Sydney Airport. I have been going there since I was around three years old.
Sorry for the bad quality photos. It is a 4s camera.
Jetstar A320 (Landed)
BA 777-300 (Taking Off)
This Qantas 737-800 just took off. Just after lift off, I could see the plane struggling to climb. It seemed to me that it was starting to loose speed while trying to climb (It was a very noticeable loss of speed). Although it was quite a steep climb, the pilots managed to regain control of the aircraft. It was very sudden.
This UPS MD-11 just landed
Thanks guys. I wasn’t there for long.
Cool pics ! Maybe take a shot of a plane rotating or a plane just landing …
Thanks Cap! It was quite difficult as the planes were quite far down the runway when taking off and landing, so it would have been really bad quality and pixelated. I tried to. I am planning to buy a camera just for plane spotting.
Luckily you didn’t see an accident.
we went around the same time lol. did you go around 4:00ish because ive got the same planes in my post!
well thats around the time I went!
Good to know that I was in the presence of another IF user!
Yep, it sure is good to know that! :)
Nice to see people spot there as well!
