Subject: The super jumbo leaves over Marrickville - quietly!
Sitting on an outdoor work bench at 6 pm munching an apple, enjoying the puddles, musing over the recent lightning, a young woman's smile etc - as you do - when a leviathan heaves into view barely 200 metres above Marrickville headed north west. They usually get a two finger salute that low. "Singapore Airlines". Hang on a sec. It's the monster spawn that was wrapped around my breakfast copy of the Sydney Morning Herald but is now plunging through the cloud mist like a white whale. The noise pummeled inner west will definitely approve. It challenges the senses to see such a whopper with friendly decibel level deep in the airport corridor. The next Boeing only 2/3 the size was double the racket. The one after looked even smaller being higher yet 3 times the thunder (!?). A helicopter hovers nearby as a I write and it's way more noisy too. Hang on, its very close. It's a got a spotlight making slow laps tracking someone. Just another day in the gritty burb.
