Quoting Palmjet (Reply 5): Look forward to more reports from you. Any more trips planned?
Absolutely! My wife and I are off to Las Vegas for Christmas visiting my family. I will be reporting on domestic Qantas A332 and Qantas A380 to LAX. Although with the constant union threats and strike action from the Qantas workforce I wish I had booked V Australia!

Nice little report, D3funct.
I see it's the same airline which flew some of the Masterchef Australia contestants from somewhere to Margaret River..
Quoting d3funct (Thread starter): In flight shot, I wonder about the propeller distortion - is that something to do with the iPhone camera, or the window glass?? We were again cruising at FL190 at that stage.
Quoting Palmjet (Reply 5): Yes, the iphone does distort the propeller - I had the same issue when I took a couple of snaps from the window of my Wideroe Dash 8 in Norway back in May.
It's to do with the camera shutter and it somehow distorts the propeller blade as I think it's travelling faster than the camera shutter speed and ends up distorting the image.

Thanks for your first trip report and good to see something on Skippers Aviation. I have seen these Dash 8's flying over my house and always thought they were all mining flights. Nice to see that some of them are taking people to lovely Monkey Mia.
You are excused this time. Seriously though, even after several flights I sometimes tend to forget, especially when the food gets served.
Quoting d3funct (Thread starter): Service on board consisted of drinks and a cookie only - either water, apple or orange juice, tea or coffee.
Just enough to stop you starving on a short flight. I assume that it was included in the fare and not BOB.

A great first report and you will develop your own style as you go along. If you have any photos of your destination when you go to Las Vegas at Christmas, don't forget to include them as not everyone has been and I am sure photos will be welcome.

Great stuff - look forward to another report from you on these flights. I hope things settle down at QF although it certainly looks like a bumpy ride ahead. I am due to fly with QF at Christmas time as well from LHR down to BNE. Like you, I hope the flights operate!
