Wheels up, Wheels Down, Wheels Up, Wheels Down

NEWCASTLE, Australia - The Galaxy arrived in Sydney today...and then flew on to Newcastle shortly after meeting a number of local dignitaries and members of the media inside one of Qantas Airlines' hangers.

With a giant Airbus A380 serving as the backdrop, Bruce, Landon and David spoke to the media about their excitement of being in Australia for Saturday's game against Newcastle. The guys fielded the usual array of questions, with most of the media more focused on what the guys hope to do off the field, rather than what they're looking to do on the field at EnergyAustralia Stadium against the Jets.

Once the press conference was over, the guys boarded a significantly smaller Qantas plane, with this one taking the guys up the coast to Newcastle in just under 30 minutes.

More fans and media were waiting for the guys there, including this guy who is clearly a big fan of the Galaxy captain.

After arriving at the hotel here in Newcastle, the guys got settled in and then went their separate ways, with some electing to head to the local beach, while others chose to get their workout in at a nearby gym.

Tomorrow afternoon will see the guys go through their only training session before Saturday's game while also conducting a clinic for a number of youth soccer players here in the region. We'll have images from all of this and more straight through until the team's return to Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon.
