Default Shep's Mound to get a makeover

Well done Sydney Airport in committing to build this facility.

All that's missing is a red Mini on the Mound

Definitely a great way to honour Bruce C. Shepherd, so we're very thankful for Sydney Airport reaching out to our group for input into the site and for getting the family involved to be able to properly commemorate Bruce in such a fitting way.

Keep an eye out for the Open Day, currently slated for August sometime, where Sydney Airport CEO Kerrie Mather will officially open the site in the presence of his family and friends.

Can we request some positive comments from the spotting community? Like a change from the usual negativity and nit-picking that usually pops up?

Have a look at the previous threads that have come and gone on the forum over the years. There's so much negative talk about the spotting areas being swallowed up by development, yet here we have some seriously great news regarding what has long been a favourite spotting area. It's an announcement worth celebrating!

Well said Nige!!!!!!

Besides, good photographers can shoot around the poles....

And then there's always the Photoshop Pole Removal Plugin Filter.

Great News, a fantastic way to remember a great gentleman, and a positive for spotters in Sydney.

Of course Nigel. This is absolutely the best thing Sydney Airport has done.

My comments were not intended to be negative, hence the at the end of my unsuccessful attempt at humor.

What a great initiative by SAC. Is there any press release to accompany the photo?

Default spotting.

That looks great.

I haven't been to Sydney for a long time, and a spotting place like that would tempt us interstate to come and visit.

And so what a pole or two may get in the way, we have digital cameras and don't have to worry about wasting film (I kinda remember film).
