Remarks: Taken from Eureka Skydeck moments before the AFL game begins. Notice the A380 begins its banking sequence, attempting do promptly finalise a 180degrees turn around the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Notice on its underbelly in red channel 7 is promoting: "WE JUST LOVE FOOTY" How's that for advertising to the MCG crowd!
Remarks: Each year, as the biggest Australian Grand Final takes place, an aircraft is flown around the Melbourne Cricket Ground moments before the game (AFL - Australian Football League) begins. This year, it approached the stadium without its landing gear down. What will be flown in 2011 is unknown, perhaps Virgin blues 737-800 promoting the AFL teams. Fingers crossed it'll be spectacular performance! For those interested, this photo was taken from the 65th floor of one of Melbourne's skyscrapers. It is an interesting illusion as the distance between the stadium and the building is 1km, however it seems as if it is directly overflying it. Don't be fooled - the plane is far away from my building and high enough not to clip the building with its enormous wings. Here's to 2011!
