Remarks: QF6170 returning from unveiling of Socceroos logo in Melbourne. A special thanks to "Rod" the pilot of this aircraft for missing the 07/25 intersection making this shot possible, as posted in his comment below. :)
Great shot Damo! The only photo so far clearly showing the whole sticker side-on. Well done!

I was the pilot landing this aircraft and having seen this photo now I'm pleased the landing didn't work as planned! We were very light and trying to exit 16R at the 07/25 intersection. However the wind was easterly and really you need a southerly to achieve that. Hit the intersection still doing 50 kts, so gave it away and exited at the normal spot. Which was great because you wouldn't have got this shot otherwise!
