Melbourne turned up the crap weather..

Still.. It was a bit of a surreal feeling seeing arguably one of the biggest bands ever to watch it arrive in Melbourne this afternoon.

Makes you wonder if other pilots feel a bit intimidated seeing Ed Force One taxi past you..

What about the bands on the road in 20 year old vans? ; D

Awesome shots, thanks for posting them up!

Impressive to see they've moved up to a 747 now for this tour. I suppose available 747s might be even easier to find than 767s, wasn't that the choice last time round?

I think it's more that the 747 is more configurable for passengers & equipment, rather than the 757s which took a lot of effort to convert for equipment..
