Spotting at Sydney airport with a few surprises.

As mentioned in the previous blog I headed down to Sydney today, arriving right on 3pm. I have seen on Instagram the last few days international aircraft with the countries Prime Ministers on board arriving for the 2018 ASEAN summit meetings. You can read about it here. https://aseanaustralia.pmc.gov.au/
As we taxied in I saw the "Kingdom of Cambodia" A319 getting ready for towing with a tug attached.. I thought bugger its going to go and I will miss it.
I got my car and got into place as soon as I could hoping I didn't miss anything, then while I was talking to some of the locals I found out the meeting ended at midday and most of the ministers will be leaving from 4.30pm.
Some of them weren't visible on flight radar so you didn't know when they were coming out, so it was really exciting to see it when it did. The Government of Brunei's B747-8LQ is absolutely amazing to look at, I really loved it.
Below are some of the other aircraft that came in for the summit.
