Nice shots in that video, you could use them for a nightly news intro. Imagine those flybys and then fading to Rod Young on Panda Watch.

Its about the way radar interacts with tall buildings I believe. I am not an aviation or radar expert so I dont know details.

Looks like a private pool deck to me.

I believe the buildings can block or interfere with radar signals and on the screen, it looks like a big shadow or empty space. Maybe big scary shadows stress the radar operators too much?

Another important fact is that aircraft taking off and landing at Brisbane have a lower angle to fly along (this uses less fuel, thus saving the flight companies money!)

As a result, flight paths are longer over parts of Brisbane. Other cities i'm sure have steeper angled flight paths and their CBD's can build taller!

It really is a case of CASA having their fat heads stuck up their butts!
