Albion Park at the Illawarra Regional Airport (https://www.google.com.au/maps/place/Illawarra+Regional+Airport/@-34.549438,150.785251,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m6!1m3!3m2!1s0x6b13128b7ca24153:0xf017d68f9ef7010!2sIllawarra+Regional+Airport!3m1!1s0x6b13128b7ca24153:0xf017d68f9ef7010?hl=en). Not normally used for aircraft that heavy and given its location at the bottom of the Illawarra Escarpment, should make for some interesting photo opportunities.

See above. Yes it should be interesting to watch it land.

(And I thought I would get there early)

I arrived about 05:30. People were camping there overnight.

It was nice!

Met lots of people.

I am sure if anything happened there would be an overload of pictures.

I shall upload some soon.

There seems to be a "problem" with some and I don't understand what it is, so when I upload the pictures someone may oblige and help me.

I am short. This was taken from the back of a truck and the plane was a LONG way away.
All the metadata is there.
But I had the lens zoomed all the way out to 135 mm.

I don't think the shutter speed was too slow.

But the plane is not "CLEAR" / SHARP.

Andrew - if you want some critique on the image you need to start a new thread (in the Transport forum). The only people who will see your image here are those that are looking for information about NSW meets. Other than group photos of members attending a meet should be posted in the NSW thread. Please use the other forums to post up your images for critique.

Camera movement.
Can you see anything in the photo that has sharp focus?
