My efforts from Thursday:

Delta B763 N1609

Julia heading out on TAAF BBJ A37-002

SAM28000 rolling on Runway 35 as Air Force 1

SAM8001 operating as SAM044

First departure after the airspace shutdown, Virgin ATR VH-FVH 'Four Mile Beach'

Virgin 738 VH-VUV 'Ruby Blue' follows behind.

Another unusual visitor to Canberra on this particular day was Dash 8-200 VH-TQG 'Pixie Rourke'

and again
thanks, hope you all enjoyed viewing

Great pics, nice photographic light. Do you know the model of the Delta a/c?

PS: Interesting letter in today's CT making comparisons of USAF 1 and our VIP fleet - noting that while ours is more modest, the VIP fleet is considerable newer and more capable than USAF 1, which is an aging B747-200 (quite an old model by civil passenger aircraft standards).

The VC-25s are due to be replaced by VC-25Bs (747-8Is) in 2017.

As mentioned the Delta Aircraft was a Boeing 767-300ER (although I have shortened it to 763)
