1) Background to the photos
QF1-B, the second leg of a flight that connects Sydney to London, took off from Darwin International Airport for its final destination London Heathrow. Early on in the 16-hour flight, Captain Charles B, retreated to his bunker for a scheduled rest during cruise, allowing IF-Assistant’s First Officer Jan to monitor the flight. The scheduled rest ended as QF1-B crossed India at sunrise and entered Pakistan. Flying past Islamabad, the captain reentered his cockpit and was greeted with never-before-seen views of the IF skies: clouds everywhere, and it was a sight to behold. Amazed by the views, mid-flight shots are taken from multiple angles during the Islamabad phase of the flight. Such views made the Darwin - London flight an unforgettable trip for the pilots and passengers.
