It's another big milestone for the channel today as it marks 10 years since the first aviation video for this channel was filmed.
In January 2006 my then girlfriend and I embarked on our first holiday to Cairns in far-north Queensland. The flight was QF 924, aboard a Qantas A330-300, VH-QPI (aptly named Cairns). What was an innocent video of the takeoff would reignite my interest and passion for aviation and see over 1300 other aviation videos follow.
This showcase looks back through the years with a clip from each year of spotting until 2016 and is then followed by an assortment of clips taken throughout the ten years on different flights at different airports in different countries.
I hope you enjoy the video and remember to let all your AvGeek friends know to get on board! Thank you for all your support!
