Question Changing planes in under 45 mins

Hey everyone,

So, I'm planning a status run with VA and the final leg of the journey (SYD-LST) will touch down at 4:15 PM.

Now, I need to get back to MEL the same evening (so that I don't have to spend the night in LST and pay for accommodation) and the last/final VA service out of LST to MEL is at 5:00 PM.

My questions ;

1. Will 45 mins be sufficient to change planes, assuming I do a web check-in and have boarding pass ready?

2. Given that the 5:00 PM VA service out of LST is the last VA service for the day, is it safe to assume that the metal flown in for SYD-LST, will be the one used for LST-MEL?

3. How to find out which is the metal/flight I'd be flying (not in terms of the airline or model of the aircraft, but any other means of identification)?

I've seen information on the aircraft rego available on flightradar24 for flights scheduled a few days in advance...

Looking on flightaware “track inbound plane” feature it does show (over the last few weeks) that the same plane operated both services (except when one or the other or both cancelled).

Thanks everyone for your replies. I checked "flightradar24" and was able to see that the flight w/ same registration is arriving LST at 04:15 PM and departing at 05:00 PM.
