Sydney - Melbourne Trip

After a few successful days in Sydney it was time to head off to Melbourne to visit our branch down there. My flight was at 4.10pm and boarding time was 3.50pm so I arrived at the airport around 3.00pm and tried my luck at some spotting before my flight.


ALL NIPPON B787-9 JA875A (CN 34531)

JETSTAR B787-8 VH-VKK (CN 36237)

QANTAS A330-202 VH-EBR (CN 1251)

QANTAS B747-438 VH-OJS (CN 25564)


I then made my way to gate 2 where my B737-838 was waiting and the aircraft for this trip was VH-VZA (CN 34195). We boarded at 3.57 and I took my seat which was 16A; the doors were closed at 4.20pm and we pushed back 4.22pm. We began taxiing at 4.24 and we taxiied out for runway 34R which is the furthest departure point from the airport. After waiting in line we lined up and got airborne at 4.36pm. After departing to the north and flying over the city we banked slowly right for around 30 seconds and headed out to sea before banking right again and started heading south setting course for Melbourne.


Our track took us over Wollongong; south of Canberra and Wangaratta. We climbed to flight level 370 and as most flights are, this one was smooth. We began our descent at 5.21pm and landed on runway 34 in Melbourne at 5.44pm.
I went over and collected my hire car and headed around to the west side of the airport to grab a few movements before heading to the motel.
