It was a very rainy day. It started early in the morning and was not improving at all.
That day we supposed to met up with a guy who had a piece for our bicycle.
His place was in a surburb we have never visited before, so regardless of weather I was glad to jump in a car and drive there! (I should be honest here as my husband drove and I enjoyed and photoshooting “rainy shots” ;-D).
By the way, I liked that suburb. We need to back there one day to do some photo shooting. It should be plenty of nice little photo gems, as I call them, there.
On the road there we suddenly noticed an airplane right above our heads appearing from nowhere!
It was scary! It was huge and completely unexpected!
On the road back we noticed an airplane again! It appeared right ahead us.
We thought “it should be something in the water”, I’m kidding! We immediately decided to stop somewhere and watch what will happen next.
And you know what? Near the road there was a special place called… “Aircraft Viewing Area”! Wow :) That was cool! Thanks to guys who thought about us, ordinary people eager after unusual things! :-)
There is even an ice-cream van there! And yes, we bough ice-cream even it was raining! It was cool to sit, eat ice-cream and watch airplanes landing right above your head :)
Do you remember that video about a small island? The island is so small that a landing strip is right near the beach line. And people have fun watching planes!
So it’s almost like there, but it’s here, in Melbourne :)
It was very interesting how an airplane appears – first you don’t see anything at all, a moment later a light dot appears near horizon, another moment – and it’s two dots – it’s airplane lights. Seconds later – you see it closer and bigger, Closer and Bigger, CLOSER AND BIGGer, BIGGEr, BIGGER, BIGGERRRRRrrrrrrr …. as a huge bird it flies over you and shows its tail landing in the airport…
It was a rainy day. But it was a nice day! It’s one of that days when you do not expect much but you open for surprised and that moments do not wait to come!

Where Is Tullamarine Aircraft Watching Area?
The parking bay is located right near the roundabout which is an intersection of Sunbury Road and Oaklands Road, near the Melbourne Tullamarine Airport:
Have only nice flights in your life!
Have you ever seen such airplane landing viewing areas? Are they usual for airports? (Thanks to Melbourne Airport for such a good thing!)
