Headed back to the airport (well sort of) today to do some spotting, something I haven’t done in ages. Had planned to check out the new viewing deck being built near runway 03 but don’t think that has finished yet and didn’t fancy a yelling at by security, so I decided to stop by at a nearby park very close to the threshold of runway 03.
Had some issues with softness – really need a Canon 100-400mm! The 1.4x extender is good but not fantastic and you do lose quite a bit of sharpness.
Planning on heading back soon when the new viewing deck is complete. Oh and for those interested, the above plane (9M-MRL), a Boeing 777-200ER was operating MH124 from Perth to Kuala Lumpur.
