It was a fantastic, smooth day for a flight, and so it was all rather uneventful. It's a bit weird looking out and giving instructions... turn this way or that way, climb, descend etc instead of being a passive passenger or the pilot, but I did enjoy myself.
Here are the best of a few photos that I got. The first is looking north up the Wairarapa valley, the second towards to south-east of Palliser Bay. The last is a photo of an Interislander ferry at the harbour entrance on the way back to Wellington. Note the smooth, clear water.
All in all, a very enjoyable flight. Thanks Rochelle!
