Pacific Dawn

Pacific Dawn. Enroute to HNL the other morning. They're only iphone photos with no enhancement so they never do justice to the view.

Awesome view Keg! I'm very jealous of your 'office' with a view like that!

Nope. It actually belongs to Balmoral Air Pty. Ltd. - Artarmon NSW

Got that right. Pay me what I'm getting paid now and I'd quite happily do what Piano Man does!

I took a dozen or so of those dawn shots over a period of a half hour or so. About five of them worked out OK.

Jaba, Wagners may well have bought it - I was only going by what it says on the register & FlightAware. I'm sure Groggy will correct me if I'm wrong!

Ok, so AM and PM photo. Landed at the reef, and the company Caravan flew overhead, getting ready to leave the reef, and then the afternoon at Whitehaven:

I believe Balmoral air is owned by the well known yachting/wine family to transport all those Sydney to Hobart trophies

Nice photos, Keg, although I hate that time of the day when you're fumbling around trying to put up some sort of screen to stop the sun shining in your gritty, awake-all-night eyes. You need to keep up with that FO of yours; he's got everything set up for HNL (VOR for the G/A etc), while yours...........

Thumbs up

...is set up for our current track which seems to be the convention on the 767. The fact that the F/O for that trip was another Captain may also explain why. Given he's not used to that sleep he needed all the prep time he could muster.
