Brisbane and Sydney Planespotting - Part 4

Part 4 of 4

Part 4 is the last edition to my series of posts from my Sydney and Brisbane trip. Part 4 is my flight back to Cairns on QF924 - operated by a Qantas Boeing 767-300. Unfortunately, all 767s in the Qantas fleet will be phased out by 2015, so I was hoping to catch another one of them whilst I can.

Sydney - Cairns

Today's QF924 flight up to Cairns will be flown by VH-OGT. OGT was ordered new by Qantas in 1998, and features the airline's new revised 2007 livery - something that only a handful of Qantas 767s have.

For approximately half the flight, we were cruising at FL260. I believe this was due to turbulence above

Once clear of the turbulence, we climbed to FL400

Right after we disembarked the 767, Polet Airlines Anotonov 124 RA-82068 rolled down the runway bound for Paya Lebar Air Base, Singapore (WSAP). I managed to get a quick shot of it as it roared past.
