Planespotting at Sydney Airport [UPDATE]

Here a few photos around Sydney airport. This was my first time so they’re not the best, and there aren’t many because I didn’t spend much time at the airport either.
Please feel free to comment below and teach me to take better pictures, and tell me where I went wrong







:D

I have been going to the place in pictures 3,4,5 and 6 ever since I was 2. I still do. My family and I would sit there for hours and watch planes take off and land. One reason I love that spot is because of the bunch of trees on the left. Every single time I hear the engines roar behind the trees, it gives me goosebumps not knowing what aircraft would pop out from there. Especially the 747s.

In the last picture you might have been able to go right up to the fence…

Someday… I will make it to the legendary beach spotting location of SYD and get all thise exotic Far Eastern and Australian airlines…

Need a bit longer range lens for the SYD beach spot but otherwise, good work.

Don’t be afraid to go up to the fence for that ANA 787 though 😀

I want to go back and go right up on the beach with my longer lense as well and spend a few hours there taking photos :)

At Sydney Intl I recommend plane spotting near the tower, especially when runway 34R/L is active!

16R and 16L were active yesterday when I went. But I’ll keep that for future references:)

Airport values our local plane spotting community and their enthusiasm for the airport and its activities.

Never though I’d hear an airport say that
