Flight Number/Route: QF690 ADL-MEL
Aircraft: Boeing 737-400
Rego: VH-TJS
Flight Time: 50min
Seat (me): 17F
Load Factor: 95-100%
Time departed: 1602 SA time
Time arrived: 1722 Vic time
Runway departed: 23

Some spotting beforehand. This was my first time I ever saw VH-ZXS. :mrgreen:

VH-TJS landed from Sydney as QF751. I met some planespotters who flew from Sydney :lol: . Here she is being serviced

I boarded before the boarding call and sat in seat 17F. I chatted to the flight attendant before the other passengers boarded. Here is my view.

We were delayed half an hour as the fire alarm went off in the tower :shock: . So instead of taking off at 1530, we left at 1602. I was hoping the flight wouldn't be cancelled but it wasn't. 8) We pushed back, and the flaps made a high pitch sound as they went down. We taxied to runway 23.

It was horrible overcast weather but it smoothed out and was sunny. We cruised at 35,000 feet. Here is a shot in-flight.

Soon it was time to descend. The clouds, while gaps in the middle, were growing.

We went onto the final approach for runway 16. This is my most favorite shot for the whole trip.
