Sydney - Brisbane

After three very busy days here in Sydney it was time to go home.
My Qantas flight was at 3.05 pm so I made my way to the airport arriving there around 1.40.
Although I only had a pocket camera with me ( a Panasonic DMC-TZ57) I decided to do a little bit of plane spotting for the 50 minutes I had up my sleeve.

AIR CHINA A330-343 B-6102 (CN 1695)

My aircraft, a Boeing 737-838, was leaving from gate 5 and the aircraft for this trip was VH-VZS.
We began boarding at 2.40 and I took my seat which was 15F. Unlike my trip down where my window seat didn't have a window, this time I kind of did, directly at my shoulder was a wall but I could see out from the window in front or over my shoulder. We pushed back 3.08 pm and commenced taxiing at 3.12 pm. We taxied out for runway 34L which is the furthest point from the terminal for take off; and after waiting in turn for our departure we got airborne at 3.27 pm. Our climb out was smooth and comfortable and after making a sharp right and then a slow left hand turn we set course for Brisbane climbing to 380. Our track took us up over Newcastle; Port Macquarie and the Gold Coast. We began our descent into Brisbane at 4.16 and landed in Brisbane on runway 19 at 4.44 pm.
