Perth Spotting 2019.06.25 Part 2

Continuing from the previous part.

The next 2 look rather small through the viewfinder from this distance. Compared with the other jets that come in, these are tiny. But stand right next to them, and you'll realise that they are actually quite big.

Private Cessna 525A (VH-EJT)

Private Beech 200 Super King Air (VH-LKH)

Private Beech 200 Super King Air (VH-YVG)

Imagine the distance the other jets need to be behind to give them the clearance.

Virgin Australia B737-8KG (VH-VUY)

And then we had the Dreamliner, sleek, quiet and smooth.

Qantas B787-9 (VH-ZNG)

After the arrival of the technologically advanced aircraft, we have this, a classic that has been going strong for decades.

Qantas Link B717-231 (VH-NXN)

This 738 touched down a little further down the runway than the other jets. Looks like the 738s are going to be operating much longer worldwide now with the MAX being grounded.

Qantas B737-838 (VH-XZI)

Now this next one was a real treat. As a person who really likes the A340, seeing one is great. Seeing that said one in a special livery.... even better!!

Team South Africa

South African Airlines A340-313 (ZS-SXD)

Another special (for me at least), coming in for landing into Perth.

Beech 1900D (VH-NYA)

And while waiting for our main target, here's another wave of Fokkers.

Virgin Australia Fokker 100 (VH-FNT)

Qantas Link Fokker 100 (VH-NHV)

Virgin Australia Fokker 100 (VH-FNC)

It has also become a trend by airlines (MAS, BA, Lufthansa etc) all over the world to churn out their retro livery, and Qantas has also followed on. Here's the Retro Roo. Just recently found out that QANTAS actually stands for Queensland and Northern Territory Aerial Services (did I mention this already?)

Qantas B737-838 (VH-VXQ)

And next, for the star of the day. One the the most modern airliner to date, the A350. SQ is now sending these in to replace their A330 service. These frames (the SH_ series are the regional A350s)

Singapore Airlines A350-941 (9V-SHH)

That shall be it for Part 2, Part 3 to follow suit.
