Not CX157... Its CX103 which is due in around 10:30 and is scheduled with a A333 which this is, whereas CX 157 arrives at around 23:20 and is a A343.

Now THAT'S a fancy looking plane. I wonder how the camera man got a great shot.
Eastgardens to Kingsford is a 1-2 section fare.

I will be greedy and post two of my recent favourites. The quality is much better on the unsized pics of course.

This is one I always consider a small and simple victory which always impresses me when I look at it

No prizes for guessing where this is... Maybe a small one for guessing what it is though

Certainly is, A330-201 iirc.

I've got a few more from that spot (March 2008) -- I've got a fair few from the Airshow yesterday however alot of them aren't that clear due to the rain and a fair few weren't taken by me as I relinquished my Camera to my friend who forgot his.

I may try and get some photos on this trip to Bali this week but I cannot forsee any times I won't be behind glass.

If you are splitting hairs with the poster who said it was an A330-200, then in actual fact this a/c VH-EBC is actually an A330-202, not a -201! Ie a slightly different version of the GE CF-6 engine.

Whilst I don't disagree with your saying it's a -202, I have to ask how you know it's EBC, When I never captured the registration in the photo...

Anyway, Here's another A330-200, This time at Bali's Ngurah Rai Airport, After Pushing back as JQ038/QF225 direct to Sydney, Whilst I was waiting for JQ082 to Darwin

Would be because VH-EBC is the only white Jetstar A330.

Fair enough, I wasn't aware of that, I always figured the lighting had caught the plane in a strange spot -- It seemed silver when I saw it, That's all.

I have a number of aircarft photos on file, but not all are off my camera, so I can't really post them. :( However I have selected 2 that are worthy of showing off. :)
Scan0316.jpg

I cant recall when I took this, except it was pre 2006. Anyone remember this ad near T2 at Sydney Airport?

737 landing.jpg

I was on my way to Christchurch on a lovely Emirates A340, which was about to taxi out onto runway 16R/34L for take-off over Botany Bay, when we were delayed. Having the camera out still, and looking for scenes not easily captured from the ground, I quickly focused my camera and my attention on this Virgin Blue 737 coming in over Sydenham and Cooks River Railway Yards.

One day I'll pull my finger out and hang around near this location in the hope of getting "the perfect photo." :)

A few from me then:

American Airlines 777-200ERs at Tokyo Narita (with Qantas 767-300ER and A330-300 in the background)
Image

Singapore Airlines A380 as night falls in Sydney - after the inaugural A380 service from Singapore.
Image

Northwest Airlines 747-200 at Sydney - showing the spotters in attendance for a rare Classic departure.
Image

I also have a photo of the preserved Qantas 707 - I particularly like this one passing her modern day sisterships.
Image

British Airways 747-400 taxiing for take-off in Sydney. Love the sunset effects.
Image

Air China A330-200 rotating at Sydney - the power and energy of a take-off always astounds.
Image

Korean Air Cargo 747-400F landing at Penang Airport very early in the morning - pan photos are always good when they kind of work.
Image

Shows everyone is amazed at the noise and sights of a big aircraft taking off. :lol:

And finally ... :P :P :P
