Today's cool photo is of a Royal Australian Air Force [RAAF] Boeing C17A Globemaster III, A41-207, parked up at Wellington! What a cool machine!
This aircraft arrived at Wellington earlier today., but left around 5pm-ish for a quick trip to Blenheim/ Woodbourne and back. Sources indicate that among the passengers was the Hon Gerry Brownlee, who appears to have found yet another way to avoid the airport queues :-)... but serious, as Minister of Defence, I suspect that this might be a precursor to the rumoured announcement of the RNZAF purchasing 2-3 of these aircraft in the next 12 months, Yes, I'm calling it - with a 75% probability - so not certain, but close enough. We will see.
Anyway, here is the picture!
