Hey Everyone, welcome to another addition of my Spotting at Sydney series. For this session I hauled myself out of bed before the sun was up so that I could get the international arrivals first thing, Sydney recently suffered a weeks worth of rain which made for some interesting shots. Here are the best shots that I got, hope you enjoy them :)
I also have an Instagram account that I started this week which you can check out here. (alexevans_aviation)
To get us started here’s VH-MSZ operated by the Royal Flying Doctors Service taxing past at Sheps mound. Just before this one departed a Qantas Link Dash 8 Q400 suffered a bird strike causing some significant delays.
Next up is the first of many panning shots for this topic, here we have VH-EBL a Qantas A330-200 operating between Sydney and Perth
Next up we’ve got a rex SAAB 340, VH-RXQ zooming past on 34L headed for Dubbo
To follow here is PK-GHC, this Garuda Indonesia A330 came rocking the Mask on livery. Rather fittingly you can see the First Officer has a mask on.
And following this was the departure of the Qatar 777-300 A7-BAH. This photo shows just how wet the runway was!
After this was the arrival of JA897A, an ANA 787 with a beacon.
Next up is the plane that I took on my trip to Vietnam at the end of 2019, VNA863 a Vietnam Airlines 787.
Following on from that we have the Virgin Australia 737 VH-VON blasting off of 34L
And here’s another 737 departure, VH-VZZ operated by Qantas
To follow we have the exquisite Thai Airways 777 HS-TKY launching into the sky off of runway 34L
Here’s something a bit different in terms of looks at Sydney, VH-LPS is a Learjet 35A operated by GoJet. Notice the wingtip fuel tanks that are found on the 35A model!
Sydney is no stranger to surprise visitors, VH-NKQ is a Fokker 70 operated by Alliance Air. This particular aircraft is based at Brisbane and rarely ventures into YSSY.
One of my personal Favorites from the day, United Airlines 787 N25982 roaring past sheps mound headed back home to the USA.
A slightly newer kid on the block is VH-PAG, the Regional Express 737. This one has been busy on the Sydney to Melbourne Route!
And last but not least is the American Airlines 777-300 N728AN heading back over to LAX
That’s all I have for today, hopefully you’ve seen something you liked. If you’d like to see more check out my instagram: alexevans_aviation for daily photos.
