Photo of Note: Emirates A380 flyover at Melbourne

Aviation fans in Melbourne (or watching Melbourne on TV) yesterday were graced with wall-to-wall visuals of the Emirates logo for Cup Day. The real treat though came in the afternoon when Emirates A380 A6-EDA tracked over from Sydney as EK5388 to conduct a flyover of Flemington Racecourse at 1100 feet (see flightpath), which Flickr user 1ncorrect inadvertently captured, below, during a time lapse photography session.

The jet lumbered around northern Melbourne, which I can attest to as I was indulging in a nap on the public holiday and awoke to the sound of four Engine Alliance GP7200 engines and then saw the jet heading straight towards me. It was the best alarm clock I’ve ever had.
