Remarks:Link 425 on descent into NPE from AKL with Hawke's Bay in view as well as the Napier-Taupo road below. This was my first turboprop flight and additionally I logged my 100th hour of flying at the end of this journey! Taken from seat 11A.
Remarks:New Zealand 638 in the awesome All Blacks scheme turning off her engines after arrival from Queenstown with chocks being put in place. I was stoked when this rocked up and parked right in front of me allowing me to shoot it to my heart's content! [1400px]
Remarks:New Zealand 527 going for a walk and heading to Christchurch in the early afternoon. I flew on this way back in 2002 when it was with Freedom Air! It's great to see that it's still going strong.
Remarks:New Zealand 136 BNE-AKL on climb out over Moreton Bay on our departure track to SCOTT. This was my first 777 flight however it was meant to be a 747 before an aircraft change. :( Taken from seat 59A.
Remarks: Three different aircraft in NZ's fleet in the very early morning with the 77W completing its long flight from LAX, the A320 preparing for a Trans-Tasman hop and the B733 doing another domestic run.
Remarks:Dunedin getting towed to bay 2 for the long flight to SFO close to sunset with a company A320 taxiing behind. I was meant to fly her BNE-AKL that day; however, the flight got changed to a 772 and she was sent to SYD instead. I'm still glad to get a shot of one of the two remaining 747s in the NZ fleet.
