Resident content team member, transport enthusiast and shutterbug, Matthew Bridges, recently took a trip to Perth to live his childhood dream of riding in a Boeing 747- 400 aircraft.

With the country-wide retirement of the 747 scheduled for 2020, Bridgie was desperate to experience the flying might of the jumbo jet before the mammoth Airbus A380 and modern 787 Dreamliner take reign over the skies. And, as all aircraft enthusiasts know, when flying in an iconic plane, one must always get a seat on the top deck.

Bridgie flew to Perth on the 12th of August to catch the jumbo jet back across the country to Sydney. He took some impressive shots of the Boeing aircraft and a few stunners from his time in Perth too!
