The beautiful Cessna 208B Grand Caravan N5420C Demonstrator visited at Sydney Airport today, making the short trip over from Bankstown. Seen here departing DOM5 on a Demonstration Flight, before heading back to Bankstown.

Qantas Airbus A380 VH-OQD arrived back at Sydney Airport this morning as QFA6054, after heading to Dubai as QFA6053 on 25FEB18 for a landing gear replacement. Under a new Qantas/Emirates deal, the Emirates Aircraft Appearance Centre in Dubai will also repaint eight QF A380s in the new livery.

No repaint for VH-OQD on this visit to Emirates Dubai. Seen here on short final for Runway 16R at Sydney Airport.

The Japan Airlines JAL772 B789 Dreamliner took a little longer than expected to start rolling on Runway 16R this morning at Sydney Airport, forcing a "Go Around" for Garuda Indonesia A330 PK-GPT - Second time around it was a perfect landing by Garuda.

Lovely new landing gear on OQD. We will have to wait a bit longer for the new QANTAS livery on an A380. Brilliant photos Grahame capturing the low level go round which I watched on 16R. Reminds me of when the Fokkers used to do navaid testing with very late go rounds. Thanks again for making 16R available to us spotters.

Thanks James, There was plenty of action yesterday, and the RAAF Wedgetail Missed Approach was a highlight.

Thanks for the update Robert, a great selection of visitors, and from the windsock, just a bit windy. Nice to see the Wirraway and Mustang.

Robert,

Does the Macchi in the back of the VH-HBZ photo belong to the RAAF training school ?
