We spent nearly an hour in parking bay 71 doing interviews and a photo shoot with the media unit, taking selfies, and marvelling at the fact that we're the first formation of EAB aircraft to ever land at Sydney. One of the ground workers posted a video of our landing to facebook
, then said he'd tried to organize a formation of 3 Robins a few days earlier and been refused...
Having finished what we set out to do, we saddled-up, taxied on A past all the parked 747's to holding point F, lined up, and departed 16R. Tower said, "Very impressive," as they passed us off to Departures on climbout.
Great thanks to Kurt and Fiona from the media unit, Jennifer from Airport Coordination Australia, and everyone from Air Services Australia who helped out.
And massive thanks to Eddie, who we appointed as our formation team leader for 2020, who's clearly been doing a great job.
