Welcome to WASPS (W A Spotting), a site where I will post photographs of aircraft resident in, or which have visited Western Australia.
This site was originally established in 2010 as Aussie Aircraft Photos but has been renamed to reflect aviation activity solely in Western Australia and to display photographs taken from the Perth Airport Viewing Platform which opened in December 2011.
Photographs dated prior to December 2011 are scans of prints, but those dated since will be digital images. Most of the photos are from my collection but I welcome any contributions of civil or military from other enthusiasts. All photographs published will be acknowledged to the contributor.
Photos will remain on the heading page for one month after publication then be transferred to the type's sub folder.
This site is intended to complement and NOT replace other W A sites which are providing outstanding information to enthusiasts.
Although this aircraft is wearing Pacific Blue colours, flights are being conducted by Virgin Australia. Various subsidiary companies were rebranded under the Virgin Australia label in late 2011 and aircraft will be repainted when a major maintenance is scheduled.
