Up in the clouds (Brisbane to Melbourne)
17 June (my iPhone getting a work out again for this blog)
I love flying, but my body doesn’t like flying. Even for big plane flights I take motion sickness tablets. I’m pleased to say that with a lot of more regular flights in last few years I can actually look out the window and enjoy the view.
Taking off from Brisbane, where it had been mostly cloudy since arriving on the 13 June, heading north first.
As we banked to turn & head south, you can see the cloud hanging over Brisbane.
As we climb higher…
….you can see the Brisbane River and city clearer….
….but just as quickly it disappears under a blanket of cloud.
As the outskirts of Brisbane can just be seen, the cloud becomes thicker.
It is like another world, above the clouds, for as far as you can see, cloud below and blue sky above.
I like watching the flight path on the TV….
…..and the stats.
There was a bit of a break in the cloud, not long before Melbourne.
But we flew amongst the cloud as we approached Melbourne.
Cloud below and above. Yes I did wish I could take this cloud home with me, but I found out that Melbourne and surrounded area needed rain also, so I was hoping it was raining on those that needed it
The beginning of our Melbourne holiday had begun.
Not bad pics for a phone Anne, shame the clouds were there and we didn’t get much rain
Yes know that feeling Greg, lots of cloud & little or no rain
Thanks re nice comment about pics from plane.
I love looking from up above and I’m glad you’re body has learnt to let you enjoy the trip a little more. I love the info you can get about where you are and the plane info. It is always interesting.
I love chopper flying too Anne,
Last time I went I was terrible sick. Closed in chopper. Think doorless suits me better. Still enjoyed flight over Katherine Gorge & surrounding area.
Yes I marvel these big planes can get off ground & love the view from up high. Last few times I’ve flown it has been cloudy but flight very smooth. Love pilots that know their job well. Ann
