Remarks: The quiet and clean departure pier at Muscat. Whilst it might not be big and modern like other hubs, due to to it's lack of 'intensity' it was a more enjoyable airport to spend an hour between flights.
Remarks:Sydney on climb out of Brisbane bound for Sydney on the second leg of the QF8 DFW-BNE-SYD. A good collection of Virgin Blue and Virgin Australia liveries including the hybrid scheme can be seen below the wing. The ramp looks like a model airport! [Canon 500D]
