Windy Crosswind Arrivals Into Melbourne

Windy Crosswind Arrivals Into Melbourne

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, today I returned to the airport to go spotting for only my second time with a camera… I know, would you believe it? Thanks to @Alex_E and @Cameron_M for the suggestions and recommendations for camera settings, because as I’m sure you’ll see below, it made for some stunning shots.


First on the list today is this stunning shot of a Cathay Pacific A350-1000 arriving from Hong Kong with registration B-LXB. This magnificent A35X is 3 years old.


Next up to enter final for runway 34 at Melbourne is this Qantas Freight Boeing 737 arriving from Adelaide. I love this shot, because you can see Melbourne’s city skyline in the background.


Last but not least today, we have a delayed Jetstar 787 arriving in from Sydney with registration VH-VKI, aged 6 years old.



Thanks so much everyone for viewing my spotting topic and let me know what you think of my photos, plus let me know which one is your favourite.

Also if you have any tips for spotting in general, let me know as I’m just getting started and would greatly appreciate it.

Take care everyone!
