2013 Melbourne F1 Fly-by

Wed Mar 13, 2013 10:51 pm

I will be attending the Australian Grand Prix in Melbourne tomorrow. Any idea on what plane will be conducting the fly-by. Will it be something new like an A380 or can we just expect the usual B744 VH-OEB with the F1 decals?

I wouldn't expect anything at all tomorrow, from Qantas at least,

RAAF Roulettes will be in the air and the F/A-18 will likely do what in the event business we would call a "site survey"

Sat will see Roulettes and perhaps another F/A-18 "inspection"

Sunday, QF flyby could be a simple overflight by a sched flight or a "display" as seen last year, aircraft .. could be anything.

QF not being naming rights sponsor, who knows how committed they will be!!
If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

A330-200 is confirmed.
It's all about the destination AND the journey.
