Day Three at Sydney Airport

This is my 3rd and final day at Sydney Airport for now, I have had a wonderful time watching, listening to and photographing aircraft from all over the world. As previously mentioned many of the airlines that visit Sydney do not come to Brisbane, and if the airline does visit it is a different aircraft. i.e. China Southern bring in a A380 here to Sydney but bring in a A330 to Brisbane.
I have lost count on how photos I took today but I have posted the ones I thought were interesting to see.

Singapore Cargo Boeing 747-412F 9V-SFG (CN26558) parked up at the freight apron with her mouth open.
I had the shutter open for about 20 seconds giving a wonderful light trail as the approaching aircraft passes by behind her to land on 16R.

Taken from my motel room Polar Air Cargo / DHL Boeing 767-300 N643GT (CN 37809) makes a very early getaway on runway 25.

Air China Boeing 777-300ER B-2032 (CN 38671) showing how proud 
she is to be part of the "Star Alliance" group.

Also showing her "Star Alliance" allegiants is Air New Zealand's Airbus A320-232 ZK-OJH  (CN 2112)

Regional Express (also know as REX) run a fleet of SAAB 340's. (CN 340B-257) This aircraft, VH-EKX is sporting a livery for "Shark Cage Diving"

Qantas has had one of its latest Boeing 737-800 painted in the old "Retro Colours" VH-XZP (CN 44577) is seen here arriving from Adelaide. The new retro look is in honour of the late Qantas CEO James Strong and it wears his name just under the cockpit window.

Qantas sent one of its retired 767's up today for about an hour and a half doing testing.
This 767, VH-OGL (CN 25363) along with 4 other 767's have been sold back to Boeing in Seattle. 
Boeing will then lease them to low cost carrier "West Jet" in Vancouver.
