For those who do not live anywhere near here, the Marlborough Sounds would have to be one of the most scenic environments you could fly through. The Sounds are [pretty much by definition I suppose] a series of inlets "constrained" by steep sides hills and islands. A fantastic scenic place to fly through! Although I did not get any pictures of my own, click here for a Google images search of photos others have taken.
In other "news", here are pictures of some visitors to the Wellington International Airport western apron today [Sunday]. Top to bottom we have:
Piper PA28R-20o Arrow II, ZK-DUY, Canterbury Aero Club
Piper PA28-161, ZK-MND, Aircraft Rentals of Rangiora
Cessna 172P, ZK-SBK, Canterbury Aero Club
Cessna 172N, ZK-EOS, Hawera Aero Club
2 x Fairchild SA227-AC Metroliner, ZK-POB, Airwork Flight Operations of Auckland
The Metroliner was here on an aero-medical flight, the others appeared to be just passing through in various directions.
