Hi All,

Just to put you all in the picture today's weather was atrocious! we had it all...hail, rain, sunshine, and strong winds the only things missing were the thunder & lightning. That said only the serious die hards were out in yesterday's weather to catch a glimpse of an unexpected visitor to Perth Airport.

Flight EK412 from Dubai to Sydney diverted to Perth after a female passenger was treated on board having had a suspected stroke, she was treated in-flight by two doctors who were passengers and treated the lady upon arriving
in Perth.

This flight was previously 6 hours late leaving Dubai after onboard electrical problems delayed the aircraft.

This is only the second A380 to visit Perth, the previous being a Qantas aircraft VH-0QA on a promotional visit.

Attached is a selection of my photographs taken from yesterday alongside many others who were also at the airport
yesterday. Hopefully some different angles from Ian's earlier photos.

Fantastic shots, all :clapping: Greg, I love your Yananyi Dreaming :yahoo:
Pity those A380 passengers especially those going to Auckland, 6 hours delay from Dubai (electrical fault), 10 Hours in Perth(medical emergency + waited for replacement crews frm Sydney + Again electrical fault!).

* The Embraer EMB-135BJ Legacy 600 (PT-TKD) which TK shot at Subang a few days ago, arrived Perth last night from Singapore

Mir, THat's near the TOSHIBA factory area. its a new area, not even in google map GPS road view yet. but hey, i found another spot. Its near AQIS (Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service).
you can park the car in public FREE car park, and you can see the whole "Rotation" a/c view... You probably been there before.

BBQ pit tak syiok (not good) unless u like to wake up freaking early in the morning (like MIR do :P) and have a long lens in the range of 300-400mm. Else I would recommend either gate 4 near domestic terminal or the mound at rwy 21 approach. These location need a small 2-3 steps ladder.

Guys,

I found out another area to spot. Its new for me. i dont know about others.

Posted Image

SPOT AREA I: They call it "The Mound"
Great spot if you have a close lense such as 28-90 for side on shots, or longer than 300mm for touch down shots. Be careful of snakes and other nasties in this area. Also carry ID with you if APS or other WAC staff question you, and be polite if they ask you to leave. SOURCE:Numloxx
I assumed you have to walk to thru the bush to get here.


SPOT AREA II: The other mound, good spot for Afternoon Rwy 21 arrivals.
Never try this area yet.Would like to this weekend. Im not really sure where to park your car. I prefer free parking but been advised to be aware of the Clamping session.


Another Spot for me,
SPOT AREA III and IV. FREE PARKING GUARANTEED

Zoomed in

SPOT AREA III: Tried that last week. good for approach RWY21 and you expecting this sort of photo
lens between 55-200mm
Posted Image

SPOT AREA IV: Quite close but different viewpoint. Side view.

hope this helps. :rolleyes:
