    Carrying Sydney on its back...

    My daughter took this shot of a 747 taxiing on the ramp while carrying a heavy load ;-)

     

    @Joost: I'm sure that if you visited Sydney you would get hooked too. indecision

    @Enmanuel: Glad to do it :)

    It's not so easy to get these big birds nicely in frame, so great pic! (As usual)
    Australia is pretty high on my wishlist. Just looking for a good excuse and travel partner.
    Well, I have a lot of good friends who used to work for Boeing Australia and will be moving back to Australia in the coming time, so maybe I should go pay them a visit!

    This treasure will be there amongst others. No, sadly not my car!

    The A380-800 on Final Approach

    A friend of mine just forwarded me his photos of the QANTAS Airbus while on short final for landing at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). Awesome, aren't they? kiss

    A good photo - particularly as it captures another Qantas A380 in the background.

    Below is a good story for the aeroplane junkies. I include myself in that group as I was one of the many thousands who got up early to go and watch.

    I remember seeing this video a while back-- still as cool now as then! It must have been awesome to actually be there and witness it, especially given this particular plane's history. Thanks so much for sharing! kiss

    Some Voodoo Magic...smiley

    We had a great time yesterday at the Grand Prix of Long Beach / Porsche Motor Sport event hosted by Circle Porsche! The RS cars had an amazing presence and every one of you that owns one is a lucky bastard. kiss

    The food, the drinks, the people, and the DJ's music made for a suburb evening experience for me and my two girls. Magnus Walker showed up in his 997 GT2 and secretly stole the attention away from all the other cars (including the 918s). angry

    My RS is going in for its annual service this Saturday and I look forward to driving back to the same place where I picked her up more than five years ago!

     

    @Gnil: Absolutely! I'm very happy to share those special moments...

    Thanks for sharing kiss, the blue one looks sensational (probably exactly the color I would go with...blue, black wheels, etc.).

    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    You can't talk yourself out of this one RC. You secretly want to call your dealer and get an allocation...smiley I would have a difficult time deciding between Mexico and Voodoo Blue (car with clear tail lights). UV looked great as well. The RS cars look really great when they travel in packs!

    My dealer got another 4 allocations (of needed 7), so calling him wouldn't work, all the cars are already sold. Smiley No, he doesn't expect to get any more allocations.

    I wouldn't have a problem getting a separate allocation though, I think but while I want one, I want a 911 R and a Huracan as well. Smiley Unfortunately my car budget doesn't allow any (car) toys anymore but I may make an exception for something I cannot resist. A 911 R with PDK and rear seats or a 991 GT2 RS may be irresistible but... Smiley

    Time will tell but right now, money is the issue, not getting an allocation. Smiley Too many toys lately...

    Fantastic pictures Pilot thanks for sharing kiss. The Vodoo Blue is spectacular (not that the other ones are not).


    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    Thanks Pilot . Beautiful angles shots and great idea to present them in the exact same one for each colors kiss

    I would take Voodoo blue out of that choice .

    Re: The moment I've been waiting for...

    I like them too. When I was walking around the cars I didn't really know exactly what I was going for, but when I uploaded the photos at home I saw the beautiful pattern and colors. kiss

    It is Saturday and I'm at the Porsche dealer now. 😊

    My daughter is with me today while our RS is in the shop for its annual inspection and service. Everyone at Circle Porsche is very friendly and professional. My technician, Doug, was already standing by when we arrived.

    The showroom is filled with the RS cars I posted above and, as you can imagine, it is a wonderful view. kiss

    While I was flying..

    I just wanted to share a happy moment from this morning. We were already on the way home when I played around with my iPhone. It looks like we were pretty low over the water but the aircraft was actually about 1,000 feet above the ocean.

    The weather in California can't make up its mind. One day it is cold and windy and then the next it's warm again. You have no idea how much I miss the Australian summer...laugh

    Smiley One reason I was never a fan of California weather...I love Florida (but not everyone likes the humidity in summer..., I couldn't care less). Actually, I love the weather in Nevada (Las Vegas) most: Dry heat and if you want to cool off, you just have to drive half an hour to the Red Rock Canyon, etc... There is also Mount Charleston in range, this thing is higher than the highest mountain in Germany. Unfortunately the winters in LV aren't too warm, so... Smiley

    There is a guy who lives near me who just received his GT4 in PTS Voodoo Blue and it was my first time seeing this color in person - very nice!

    RC, I know exactly what you mean... I took this shot a few weeks ago on our roof-top helipad ;-) It was cold and drizzly :(

     

    @Grant:  Voodoo Blue is an impressive blue indeed! It would be a great PTS choice!

    Forget  the Sydney summer.  It is now mid Autumn and it is still 25 degrees C out there today! 

    Very happy I have ordered AirCon on the incoming R.

    Some official photos from the Sydney Rennsport event last weekend.

    Not a bad thing at all.

    Winter is fine if you have 2 bits of wood strapped to your feet. Otherwise 25 is nice.

    Problem if you are a polar bear though..
