Went to the Airport

<< < (2/3) > >>

Hi. Near my father's house, a plane collector often flies his planes. He has a Spitfire, a Mustang a Tiger Moth... Sometimes CAF Hornets and Griffons fly over us. It is just so hot...

Here is the website of the collector: http://www.vintagewings.ca/page?s=65.

I forgot to tell about the magnificent red Staggerwing of the collector. It is one of the most beautiful planes I've never seen!

So i was at this cafe one day, and i was watching the planes take off (as in, i could see the pilots and some of the people in the windows)

I seen a Fokker somethingarather with propellers, and about 4 different jet's, probably boeings of some desciption, but they werent the 747, 757, 737 etc, it was like a small one.

I thought they would have been more noisy, but the glass in the cafe was probably sound proofed.

Gloster Meteors and Vampires are loud..

The two main airlines that service Canberra "International" Airport are Virgin-Blue and Qantas-Link. Qantas predominantly flies Dash-8s out of Canberra, those are the twin turbo-prop bug-smashers with high-set wings.

I haven't actually visited Brand Depot much at all. Is that where the café is? I only ever watch the activity from the Qantas lounge when I'm at the airport.

Yeah, twas Brand Depot, the cafe was creatively named the Runway Cafe, and it has amazing views of the runway...

I wonder where they thought of such a original and entertaining name for the Cafe....

Hey, I also wanted to tell you guys a couple weeks ago an AH-1 Cobra flew by...very loud!
It was too far to tell the variant so that I am unsure of.

Well, i've had 2 (probably) different F-18's fly over me. One was for 2007 ANZAC day celebrations, it flew over my house. I could hear it coming and I couldnt figure what the hell the screaming noise was. Lol, thought it was some loser on his motorbike, then it steadily got louder. Was a F-18.

And at Bathurst, one of them did a fly over, got some pics and vids of it. Shame, he didnt go on afterburners. Still, he was going fastish..
