Flying Marsupial - In the air part 1

Boeing 767

This is the first in a series of aircraft photos that I've snapped in the last year or so. For some reason, I tend to take photos of aircraft passing overhead when the opportunity arises. This one was taken from out the front of my house, we live under one of the approach routes to runway 34 at Melbourne Airport, so when there's a northerly, there's a plane flying over every 5 minutes or so. We also live under the approach for runway 27 at Essendon, so we get lots of light aircraft too.

My camera is not too good at this sort of thing, and it's a full size crop so the pic is a bit fuzzy.

'Snort'. Much better that I do from much closer.

Really? I think yours are pretty good.

What actually prompted me to finally posting some of these photos was because someone sent me a fantastic photo of a Jetstar plane flying over their house. Much better than my efforts, you could actually read the aircraft registration. They don't live anywhere near the airport either.
