Greetings all,

 

I am an Adelaidian who is interested in aircraft photography, building model aircraft, collecting 1:400 scale commercial airliners etc.

 

I am an ADL regular spotter and SYD where I previously lived.

 

I was told about this site by a good mate today and had to check it out.

 

Glad I did.

 

cheers,

 

Tim

Thanks guys,

 

From what I have seen already I am sure I will enjoy visiting.

 

My mates name is Ray (I'm not sure what his username is here) and he mentioned the site today while we were at the airport and flicked me the link this evening.

 

It took me a whole 1 minute of viewing to convince me I had to join.

 

I have added a couple of shots to the gallery already. There are two of the very late SQ744F but sadly light was starting to get the better of my shots.

Robbo,

 

ADL is getting better and the new'ish airport sure helps but I wish it would get a broader range of traffic. There are only so many SQ772s you can see in a lifetime.

 

Tim,

 

I hope MEL was warmer than ADL. It was windy, overcast, sunny, raining, dry.

 

Not the best day for spotting but being an old die-hard I just had to get out there to see what was going on in the world. Actually got some relatively good shots too.

Hi Tim and welcome aboard. Thanks for uploading to the gallery' date=' nice photos[/quote']Thanks Glenn,

 

I look forward to the journey.

 

I will put up some of the a/c that come through ADL whenever I can but what I am eagerly waiting for is the rumoured QFA388 sorties in September and October.

 

Getting pics of bigbird on my home turf will be great.

Hey Tim I like the one you just uploaded in the gallery. Looks like a big smiley face. Almost tempted to paint some eyes on it :D

I thought the pilot was wearing a Mickey Mouse hat. How would that go :shock:

 

That's the nice part about ADL when the freighter is in, it literally is in! from the end of the terminal you can take shots like this and get some great detail.
