Turning tightly to miss Cairns City on departure from Runway 15. A longer than usual take-off roll caused this lower than normal departure.

Looks like a stunning air-to-air shot, also notice the residue fuel being released on the right wing! Excellent shot!

Stuning! The lack of any reference point makes it seem as if you had taken the picture mid air from above as the aircraft was banking left.

Why virgin blue aircrafts are red? Isnt it ironic? (I felt like Alanis Morisette hehe)

Great Photo, i love shots that get the angle these planes fly at sometimes.
to the visitor who asked why are Virgin Blue planes red? in Australia we call someone with red hair bluey. so its a bit of Australian slang

Stunning shot mate, to speak with good old Steve Irwin, she's in her very own habitat! And btw, the small stripe coming off the trailing edge on the right wing is definitely NOT fuel. Strange that so many people are still unaware of the fact that the seventhirty simply does not sport this option, it never has and never will I suppose.

Great shot of a great plane! Love the baby vortex off the right wing (no people..its NOT fuel).

To the visitor from Mexico (Back in 2008 hah): "Why virgin blue aircrafts are red? Isnt it ironic? (I felt like Alanis Morisette hehe)"

In Australia, if you have red hair, you're usually called "Bluey"

Awesome action shot, very dramatic! Nice catch with the fuel venting out... Yes it is fuel. On hot/humid days like this the fuel expands and then is ventilated from the surge tank through that small vent.
