Expectations for Today

Today I leave Darwin going back to Sydney. Due to the ideosyncricies of airline travel these days I had to go back to Sydney to continue on. Darwin is much closer to Singapore than Sydney but Cathy Pacific only flies out of Sydney. So at 1:25 pm Darwin time on Qantas flight 549 I return to Sydney via Brisbane arriving at 7:45 pm after 5 hours and 50 minutes of flying. On the map follow the GREEN line from Darwin back to Sydney. Don't forget about that half hour time difference. Staying in a downtown hotel this time.

What actually happened this day.

Things happened pretty much as indicated above. The route followed for this flight is very close to the one shown in the map above. It was much closer than the one going up. When arriving at Sydney after dark we flew right over the city and what a pretty sight it was. It was to dark for any kind of photo but still worth seeing. Arrived at the hotel around 10:00 and went to bed.

This appears to be the only image taken this day.
It is of the Boeing 767-238 I flew from Darwin
to Sydney in.
