Unusual visitors

I popped out to the Aero Club today, only to see some unusual visitors to Wellington on the ground and in the air.

The biggest surprise is was an Air NZ operated Boeing 767-319, ZK-NCK! It has been a long, long time since I have seen a B767 at Wellington.

Next up is a Piper PA38-112, ZK-FJR, from Canterbury Aero Club, which was parked in the old engine run-up bay. Next to this was a Cessna 180K, ZK-JCW, from Canterbury Aviation Ltd. The final picture is of the underside of Cirrus Design SR22, ZK-FMN, registered to an Auckland address, during an overshoot.

Hi Rodney

I got a good view of the 767 landing from the terminal, and like you was surprised to see it. It looked great coming into land.

It pulled up to the international terminal. A charter full of Springbok fans?

Hi Andrew,

The information I have is that it was a charter for the Exclusive Brethren... originating at... of all places... Dunedin!

Incidentally, there have been a number of other EB-related charters during the past few weeks [including Woodbourne and Motueka(!)].
