Remark Photographer
VH-OQJ (cn 062) The world's first dual A380 flyover happened today in Sydney. Flying in close formation, this occasion marked the official start of a historic partnership between Qantas Airways and Emirates. The flyover was done under a special call sign "Seismic", as Tim Clark says the EK-QF partnership had caused seismic shift in the global aviation. Interestingly, Delta-Yankee disappeared from the radar after takeoff - was the TCAS system switched off? I quite like how the two prominent tails aligns one another.

Amazing shot ... probably the best airline alliance in the world, also one that is going to be one of the most profitable !!!

A visitor from - posted Mon April 1, 2013:
I believe that the Qantas plane is powered by the Rolls-Royce engines while the Emirates plane is powered by the Engine Alliance GP7000s. Great shot of formation flying!

A visitor from - posted Mon April 1, 2013:
First they cancelled their 787s order and cut some routes, and now they team up with one of their biggest rivals. What's next QF?! This airline is becoming a shadow of its former self.

Beautiful. Two out of my five favorite airlines (the others being VS, 9W, and BA) flying together over my favorite city. Will they do a similar one for DXB?

A visitor from Spain posted Mon April 1, 2013:
Just outstanding! 5*

A visitor from - posted Mon April 1, 2013:
Although Qantas' bird looks bigger in this picture, we all know who has the upper hand in this alliance! As a Qantas fan I really hope this move will somehow benefit and strengthen them.

Love it

A visitor from United States posted Mon April 1, 2013:
Delta-Yankee disappeared from the radar after takeoff because when flying formation, only the lead aircraft keeps its transponder on, the second aircraft switches to standby mode. This is to help keep the ATC radar computers from constant collision warnings. I flew formation in college.
