Not in Australia, not an Australian airline, but definitely built there, and spooky as hell landing in a cross wind.

I've been meaning to find out, Does anyone know the background story behind that A330 with the blue tail and Stars? The tail looks familiar of a European carrier (for some reason, Luxemburg keeps popping in my mind)

I saw it at Melbourne Airport recently when I was heading off to Bali

Edit: Even if I could get the registration off Someone would be enough for me to work it out myself...

Brendan03, you might like to try Airliners.net. This is a site that is raved about by all who enjoy aircraft photography. I took a photo of a plane at Sydney Airport as I was another plane leaving for Chrtstchurch, and later identified who and what it was purely off the registration and Airliners.net. :)

I'm already a member there, I was just hoping someone (perhaps the photographer) could tell me the registration, saving me hours of trawling the Civil Av forums

I think (stand to be corrected) it is hired by the defence forces as a charter plane to move Australian troops.

You wouldn't be able to magnify the registration on that photo to give me a number, could you?

After talking to a friend, He said it's 'Strategic Aviation' (which after Googling, Shows up it is indeed a troop transporting airline) - Anyway, The Aircraft is ex Air Luxor (That's where I was getting Luxembourg from... Go my Tail recognition skills!)

Thought I'd share that.

It seems Strategic have gone onto bigger and better things

I guess the A320 does the Curtin to Perth flights and the A330 the Denpasar flights (as well as the Afghanistan ones?)

If you are referring to the A330-200, that actually came before their A320s

Here is a picture that a friend of mine took for me. I was flying that A380 in the picture and is the same plane and same flight that the privious picture was taken.
Incase you are wondering the picture was taken after I had just taken off form Kingsford Smith Intl (YSSY). :mrgreen:

I made one mistake :oops: , handeling which is actually handling, I was just typing fast.
And What do you mean by what series flight sim do I have. Cause if you are indicating that I have flight simulator, I actually do not have any of those games. :evil:

Also, cool photos there lemon. I really like them. :mrgreen:

Wow that's amazing, GeneralBus! That photo looks exactly like this one http://www.airliners.net/photo/Qantas/Airbus-A380-842/1468728/L/ from Airliners.net and it was taken at London, Heathrow! What are the odds?? Do you happen to know A J Best from London? Do you have permission to use his photo?

Of course, if you actually do fly for Qantas, you'd be able to tell me what the 3 main shapes/symbols are represented on the hologram on your ASIC and also what the two 6-digit numbers mean. :)
Cheers!

If you look closely at those two A380 photos, the plane is at a slightly different angle in those two shots...

Apologies for the blotches on the lens. It was raining slightly at the time.
