Earlier in this ‘photo a day’ for the month, I mentioned how I always walk out the back door of my house and look up. Aircraft whizzing overhead are quite common, but one with a contrail is a little bit different, so it was worthy of lugging the camera out to capture it.
Whenever I see a plane like this, I think to myself, ‘wow, wouldn’t it be good to be on that jet now? Flying off to far-flung lands?’ Then again, it could be coming to Melbourne and full of people whose holidays have finished. Okay, I might have to include another thought in conjunction with my initial pondering. ‘Poor bastards. They’re coming home!’
