The 'Almost' Super Moon

On Sunday night here in Sydney, everything came together perfectly for an afternoon Avgeek session. 

Runway 25 was in operation, with a sun that casts a perfect light on the approaching aircraft - and just gets better and better as it heads for the horizon - PLUS a moonrise at 6pm. 

All of this = Avgeek Nirvana. 

The following images are the result of one of the nicest and most rewarding hours of photography I think I've ever had.
