Cold, rain, snow and the military visitors

The forecasts for today and the next 2-3 days are looking very good, in a weird kinda way. We are forecast to have snow, almost to sea level, for the first time in possibly several decades. It should be an exciting time for the next few days! Already, I've experienced a little snow at home this evening, and I'm hoping that it will start to settle on the ground on the next few days.

Apologies if you don't see the good side of this - especially if you've had heavy snowfalls that are creating problems, but it's a bit novel for Wellington.

Needless to say, there was no flying happening at the Club today, although the conditions did mean that I got a number of interesting photos. Some of them are "technically" not very good, but I hope you'll agree that they are still worth showing.

This post has a couple of Lockheed C130H's that came to visit. The first is a Royal Australian Air Force [RAAF] C130H, registration A97-007, which did a touch-and-go then left for somewhere else. The second is an Royal New Zealand Air Force [RNZAF] C130H, NZ7002, which stopped at the RNZAF Air Movements apron. Enjoy!
