  1. Such smooth footage! How do you keep the camera so still? Have a suction device?

  2. Ha ha. Perfect timing, literally 40 minutes ago I was watching Paul's Trip Reports where you got a specific mention as one of Paul's favourite flight/aviation reviewers.

  3. Is anyone else seeing this as 360p only? Hmmm I'm not sure why as it should be 1080p.

  4. 😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 That engine sound NEVER gets old

  5. Wow!! Spectacular takeoff video!! I saw this flight fly past me in Melbourne today! But I didn't get a chance to film it 🙁

  6. Something with YouTube today, I sent you the Paul's Trip Report info you asked for a while ago, and when I checked the comment wasn't there so I sent it again.

  7. Paul, did you get to do the Antarctic charter? That would be awesome.

  8. The Queen in all her magnificence!

  9. G’day Paul, do you have the video of this plane landing in Melbourne today?
    Cracking vid

  10. Comment with your favourite Boeing 747 story. 🙂 Mine would have to be my first ever flight in one back in 2015 when I flew to Johannesburg on QF63 and got an amazing view of antarctica. It was kinda weird thinking that I was flying underneath the world in a jumbo jet. 🙂 Well sort of… What's your favourite 747 story?

  11. Great video, my 747 experiences have been going on a British airways 747-400 flight from Lhr to Seattle then i traveled with my family down the west coast to San Diego flew to Atlanta on a delta 757-200 then connected to New York on a delta a320 then flew out of jfk back to Lhr on another QUEEN OF THE SKYS!(btw this was in 2013)

  12. Excellent video as always. Such an incredible view of Sydney. Thank you!! PS- I enjoy your Instagram posts as well.

  13. Wow, very stunning that 747’s operate domestic flights once in a while, i wanna fly the queen before she retires and i remember when the 300’s flew east to west coast, it is actually quite often 747’s get repositioned between syd and mel makes me jealous haha, Great video btw

  14. Such a great seat on the 747! Perfect wing/engines views! Liked!

  15. Lot's of good memories of 747 flights – including the first stage of a trip to Nepal (Douglas DC 10 2nd stage which took us to Kathmandu and a 17 day trek in the Himalayas – climbing the 5.5k metre high Mt Kala Patar – giving a wonderful view of the Mt Everest peak and kumbu ice field.

  16. Love your camera work Paul! You do so well keeping the camera still!

  17. Queen of the skies just beautiful thanks Paul.
