    Snapped a few pics this morning, thought there may be some interest, wasn't sure where to put them so here they are. Just phone snaps.

    0A always seems to be taken when I try to select my seats. Might need some sort of special status ;-)

    Used to be about the highlight of the regular day trips to Melbourne. Far better than the snacks on the way home

    A flight deck nutscape?

    Just to see the look on the other pilots face.

    Then make all the flight attendants review the pics.

    I've looked at those NASA pictures as well. Sometimes you get a good one and sometimes they just forget to slow down the satellite hence the blurry ones:p

    Yeah, that's a nice leg. Have only done it once, but it's prettier than the Syd-Can link. Or maybe I'm just bored of the M5.

    The flight into Cooma from Syd is fun in snow weather, although it's not the same views as the Mel-Can hop.
