Remarks: One of the best times I've ever had to shoot beautiful aircraft! Special thanks to Neves Family members for the invitation to photograph every moment of that day! Constructed in 2011. Ex N259CC.
Remarks: 1200px The throttle quadrant of the mighty 747 after arrival from Brisbane on bay 10. Note how Sydney Tower frequency 120.5 is dialled into standby after the crew would have switch to ground which is 126.5. Thanks to the friendly crew! Dedicated to Blake Riley who is following his dream and training to be a pilot. Hopefully you will be behind the controls of one these soon mate! [Canon 7D]
Remarks: Completely stripped of any spare parts worthy to be sold, this ageing 747-400 will shortly be scrapped. Sad when I saw this aircraft delivered new and have flown on it as crew many times when I used to fly the 747.
