Melbourne, Australia, plane spotting at the airport

On our last flight to Brisbane from Melbourne, and as I usually do when I'm at the airport with time on my hands, I wander off to do some plane spotting.

This is a Virgin Airlines ATR 72.  This airplane is a twin-engined turboprop, short-haul regional airliner developed and produced in France and Italy by aircraft manufacturer ATR.  

A Qantas Dreamliner, the first one I have seen up close, and not in a photograph or on TV.  I have yet to take a flight in one, and hopefully, the anticipation will be over when we travel from New York to Vancouver later in the year (not with Qantas, but with Air Canada).

Other airplanes there were an Emirates A380 and a Qantas A380, also an airplane I have been on (Emirates) from Auckland to Brisbane, and another belonging to Singapore Airlines, not long after it commenced service between Singapore and Sydney.
