Plane spotting, Sydney Airport

Plane spotters are quite well catered for at the perimeter of Sydney Airport. You just have to walk across a beach and through some shrubs to get there.


  1. cela me fait penser aux vacances, cet avion qui s'envole, mais il faudra attendre octobre, c'est loin ;o)

    that makes me think of the holidays, this plane which flies away, but it will be necessary to wait until October, it is far ;O)

  2. And be sure to hold your ears closed...

  3. Does the sign say, no photographs?

    I have enjoyed your post today.

  4. Sally, sometimes your photos make me wonder if you have been stalking me all my life!! LOL!! This was one of my fave hangouts...can't remember which gate it is, but all us plane-spotters knew all the spots to go to for maximum adrenalin rush and blast of aviation fumes!Another reason i used to hang out down at the sewer pipes.

  5. Caba - this is from the viewing area off Kyeemagh beach - you get to it from General Holmes Drive.

    oldmanlincoln - no it doesn't say no photo - this is a fvourite hang-ut for photographers. It says Warning - Security restricted area - unauthorisd entry prohibited

  6. With all the threats from terrorism, I'm surprised that people are still allowed to stand so close to a runway.

  7. Would it be possible to let your members know about this. It would mean a lot for your support

    The Red Arrows have been banned from displaying at the 2012 Olympics - support
    the Red arrows and sign our petition. Your views will be sent to Gordon Brown to
    campaign for the Red Arrows to be a part of the Olympic Games.

    We want the red arrows to be apart of the Olympics Games and we are very annoyed
    that they have been refused permission to perform at the Olympic Games.

    Please support the petition and visit out site and
    leave your name and comments so we can then take them personally to number 10 and to the Olympic committee and get the Red Arrows to perform at the Olympics

  8. Thankfully, the comment (above) about the Red Arrows being banned isn't true (no offence to the blogger, the story was printed in a British tabloid newspaper and has been widely circulated).

    Both the Red Arrows and The Olympic Committe have refuted the story; for more information see The Red Arrows Olympics page of the Red Arrows information website.
