Here are the [better of the] photos I got. The first is of a Polynesian Blue B737-800 at Wellington. It came out surpisingly clear considering it was shot through glass. The next are a few pictures of Wellington City as we climbed out - the Basin Reserve [can anyone advise why the Basin has rugby posts on it? I though only cricket was played there], WestpacTrust Stadium [aka the Cake Tin] and then looking back to Wellington [we took off on runway 34, right to left in this picture].
The last image was of the inside of the ATR72 this evening. Both trips were fairly uneventful apart from a little turbulance both ways, and one of the Mount Cook hosties trying to convince a dance troupe to give us a demo in flight [they did wave their arms around a bit and got a clap :-)]!
One thing that was reinforced again, is that it is sooooo hard to get a good picture whilst climbing at several hundred knots, with turbulance and cruddy aircraft perspex to shoot through :-(
