Sydney Finale | YSSY Spotting Part 4

Hello IFC! This is the last part of my spotting at SYD. Just a mashup of leftover photos that didn’t make the first three topics and some pretty conflicting editing styles.

Shot on D7500 + Tamron 100-400

Skyline shot. Sadly only A380s and 747s can be captured at this angle, everything else climbs out too fast.

Lucky with the timing here, if only it was a more interesting aircraft.

UPS’ big boy with some nice engine light.

One of these may not exist in a few weeks.

Same plane as the previous, VH-ZNI “Kookaburra” out for SFO.

Another one for my SVA Pilots.

This is the one angle I was looking for when I came to SYD, but I severely underestimated the power of heat in not only ruining your shots but resulting in longer takeoff runs. One of only two aircraft I got successfully at this angle.

My longest (legitimate) shot to date, shot from just over a mile away.

You might want to go get that checked out…

Imagine flying a plane with a range of 8700nm on a 130nm flight.

Yeah me too, I’m not legally allowed to spot at my regular spotting airport right now due to international border complications.

Thanks !
