Hi Craig,

Thanks for the tip!  

If the weather on Sunday is anything like it is today (Thu.), then it should be a great shot indeed.......provided that the flight is not delayed and runway 25R is used for landings.

Do let us know if you heard about any changes.

Cheer,
'949

Lucky Guys,
I can only dream to encounter such planes. I live near Brussels Airport, Belgium which sadly does not offer that kind of splendid planes.

Hey Craig, thanks again for the info. It was so nice to see this gorgeous bird again after all this time. The last time I saw -EBU was November '97 at Kai Tak.

By the way, with the Olympics going on, are you guys seeing a lot of unusual air traffic at SYD?

Anyway, hope to see you again later this year, though I'll be away from HKG for much of October.

Cheers,
Gordon

I know this info too late since I reinstall the OS of all my computers. However, the weather in Hong Kong was not good today - haze and occasional rain and I think today is not a good time to take photo.

Craig, see you in HKG later and maybe we can arranage a dinner with you with our photographic fans.

Hey Craig, knowing that Qantas flys the 747-338s to Cairns does Nalanji Dreaming ever drop in on Cairns?

G'day Honky Tonk Town Plane photographers!!!!!

I look forward to meeting you all again in HKG very very soon, as for dinner....well my tastes are fairly limited so if you can find somewhere that does Steak and Fries I'll be more than happy to go out for the evening!!! If thats not possible, well I guess we can all just get drunk!!!!

Now, Gordon, regarding the Ollys here in Sydney. There has been a few interesting aircraft come here, and a lot of Bizjets. Probably the most interesting a/c so far was an East Lines Airlines IL-62 and a Slovak Government TU-154!!!!!

And QF737, the 747-300's do sometimes operate into Cairns on their way to Japan. I'll try to keep everyone posted on the movements of Nalanji and Wunala as often as possible.

Regards
Craig Murray

Hi Kasing,

Yes, as you said. It was Haze. But we had shined by the sun for almost the time.
But taking this special aircraft, I don't mind for this kind of weather. Maybe better than sunny. At lease we will not face the sun while taking the photos.
I agree with you at this point, my accustomed spotting habit is not like that.
I haven't been to CLK for 3 weekends due to the bad weather also.
But I have promised a friend to give him some slides taken in Singapore so I must get to CLK yesterday(Sunday).
I missed this aircraft so much. I haven't seen it since Nov 1997. Still remmeber Nalanji came over Hong Kong for 6-7 days continuous at that moment as fligth QF87 from MEL.

regards,
Alan
