Goodbye Sydney Hello Brisbane.

Thu Feb 03, 2005 11:44 am

Well the nomadic life of an aviator continue's as i am about to leave Sydney for the fair shores of Brisbane to do my 717 training.
Just like to thank all the guys in Sydney for there help and time over the last few years.
Craig,Glenn,Sam,Norbert,Morris and everyone else it was great fun shooting at one of the worlds great photo locations.
As i final fling i managed to secure some time in a pretty special spot yesterday after some massive storms went through causing huge disruption at Sydney.


Oh and yes there are lots of heavy shots to come!!
Sorry about the compressionbut photobucket does a pretty poor job of resizing images.
The only major problem is i am netless for the next 6-7 weeks and will be unable to upload any of them at all which is pretty disappointing.
Anyway all the best to everyone and hopefully I should be putting up some cool 717 flightdeck shots soon.
Take it easy
Darren

Great shots, Darren! Where exactly were those taken from? Unfortunately I never got the chance to meet you down at YSSY, but I've certainly enjoyed looking at your photos.

Will you be able to make the spotting weekend, or are you leaving sooner than that?

Long live the A330!

Hi, Dehowie, is there a flight school for 717 in BNE?
Sorry if the question is banal but I don't know the situation in AUS.

What airlines are flying the 717 in Australia except QF?
There must be some local carrier, or not?

And are there 717's based in BNE too (except the flight training planes)?

Jetstar is the only Australian 717 operator at the moment.

I guess they have training facilities for the 717 in BNE. Maybe Darren can clarify, but I'd assume their A320 operations are centred around AVV.

All the best up there in Brisbane, Darren. What a bummer you can't upload those shots now but I guess even if you did have access to the internet you'd be too busy with your training. Its a nuisance how real life gets in the way of this hobby at times.  Laugh out loud

Hope you have a good time up here Darren. If you've got some free time it'd be good to catch up with you here.

Cheers
