Default Asean Summit Sydney 2018

Are there any interesting/expected visitors for the summit on the weekend on 17/18 March that would make it worth a spotting day trip down to Sydney?

No Fence, but road closures around Circular Quay and Kirribilli.

Will the aircraft that are flying into Sydney be just airliners from that country or will they be special?

8 ASEAN leaders (and hangers-on) start arriving in town on Friday.

Police have special powers to stop and search (without a warrant) within the Summit Area.

No drones will be able to fly in the Summit Area.

You would expect that the 8 leaders (and hangers-on) would fly in on their own VIP aircraft.

I'd definitely expect a few special aircraft arrivals...

Not special but Vietnam Airlines 787 VN-A868 is expected in Sydney from Canberra Friday morning as VN1.

Here's a list of the member states : https://aseanaustralia.pmc.gov.au/asean-australia/about

I've heard talk that we will see the Brunei Government 748BBJ : https://www.planespotters.net/photo/...ing-747-8lqbbj

Cambodia has an a320 : https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/8327119

Indonesia has a 737 https://www.planespotters.net/photo/...ng-737-8u3bbj2

After a few google searches it appears the Laos president travels around on a Laos airlines a320 : https://www.planespotters.net/photo/...irbus-a320-214

Malaysia has an a320CJ https://www.planespotters.net/photo/...214cj-prestige

Myanmar Air Force has two Fokker 70's, Here is one : https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/8777410

Thai Government a340-500 is hotly tipped to be attending : https://www.planespotters.net/photo/...irbus-a340-541

Singapore president has apparently been getting around in a VH registered Gulfstream : https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/7801601

Phillipines is apparently not in attendance.
