High Flyers

In recent months I have managed to spot quite a number of ‘high flyers’ — high altitude flights transiting the area.

Some are closer than others, but when the sky is clear I can get decent shots with my camera from 30,000 or more feet below.

For each photo, the caption states the aircraft identity, route, altitude, and track distance, which is the distance the ground track passed from me.

Qantas Boeing 787-9, VH-ZNC, SCL-SYD, 39,000 ft, 15 km.
Qantas Boeing 787-9, VH-ZND “Yam Dreaming”, SCL-SYD, 39,000 ft, 4 km.
United Airlines Boeing 787-8, N26902, CHC-SFO, 35,000 ft, 9km.
