RNZAF Boeing 757's at Wellington

I arrived at the Aero Club this morning, in time to see both RNZAF Boeing 757-2K2's [registrations NZ7571 and NZ7572] on the western apron. It is very unusual to see both of these aircraft on the ground at Wellington at the same time.

The occasion was related to flying the Governor General and others to Christchurch for the military funerals of two soldiers killed in Afghanistan last Saturday.

A group of us from the Aero Club were privileged to be allowed on to the second aircraft [NZ7572] for a look around. Many thanks to the Flight Sergeant who took us around and explained what was what. It was much appreciated by all of us!

On to the pictures, starting with both aircraft on the apron, then into NZ7572 for a look. Following this are external pictures of each aircraft, then of NZ7571 taking off. Enjoy!
