Melbourne Plane Spotting Photos and Flight Reports

Recently, I have been away in Melbourne and Sydney. Below is the first part of my trip, which includes the flight to Melbourne, plane spotting photos from Melbourne and the flight to Sydney.

Saturday 6th December

The flight to Melbourne Tullamarine (YMML) was operated by Jetstar Airbus A320 VH-XSJ as JQ943.

Melbourne has some great spotting locations, but I obviously didn't pick the right times for the International movements!
