An Evening Flight over Jurassic Park

Recommended Posts

After protests of the local residents in Broome, because of alleged low overflight and the dromedaries not giving as much milk as usual due to a resulting PTSD (lies!), the Boeing Test Crew wandered from Broome to Cairns and hopes to find more aviation friendly people. Well, fans! And the landscape is more interesting anyways. :rollmyeyes:

 

Now this is a proper, spacious tarmac!

Hey Captain. Loved the pattern flying. We live next to Fairchild AFB from which Air Force KC-135s and Navy P-3s fly multiple touch and go routines every day. I never get tired of watching. Thanks for a nice set!

Watch out for those Pterodactyls, Lars!  Stunning set!

Thank you Johnny. There was something in the distance which I thought to be a flock of unusually big birds, but now that you mention it... who knows? :unsure::ph34r:

Another excellent set Lars! Your 777 looks quite aerobatic! :D

:D Thank you very much, Paul! The wingtip vortices makes it look very dynamic.

beautiful shots with a great blue livery...but not dinosaurus >:(

:lol: Who knows... during the flight and afterwards, scanning through the pictures, I couldn't stop thinking of Jurassic Park, one of my favourite childhood movies. Thanks anyways, Jean Marc. :)
