Wild and windy today

It has been a "proper" Wellington day today, with winds gusting up around the 50 knot mark this morning. Obviously no Club flying was happening.

I headed up to a viewing spot at Strathmore, which provides great views of the approach in these northerly winds... it must have been much windier up there as I had trouble standing from time to time. Needless to say, it was very hard to get good photos, and I didn't hang around long.

However, here are two reasonable photos. The first is of the airport itself, and the second is of an Air NZ Boeing 737-3U3, ZK-NGD, on final approach. It looked like a fairly smooth approach - at least compared to some DHC-8's I saw earlier in the day!
