Getting sick of fences etc so are looking at either trading the van in for another van with a sunroof I can pop myself up through or put a roof rack and ladder on my current one. Some will say.."go shoot from an area without fences" So I got these the oter day. First time of Air Pacific and got the rugby airbus again, plus the return of a seasonal visitor.

I found out today why people were up a cherry picker playing around with the tail of a 757 last week. I was just doing a quick drive by the military apron as I usually do daily and out of the corner of my eye I catch some new colours on the tail. screech and reach over to grab the camera and got a few shots between buildings before I headed of around the corner to get a better shot but here she was taxiying out, so rushed around to my other lurking spot along from the freight depot , but she was heading south so had to wait 10 minutes before she wound up the throttles and blasted off. Not the best as the day was a funny one and tried some of my editing tools.
almost forgot, saw this there the other day. Not sure if it was Rudd doing a runner or Julia putting in a donation for the cathedral.
