Today's aircraft

Aircraft from today's visit to Wellington airport are a couple of Sounds Air Pilatus PC12/45's, an Airwork Fairchild SA227-CC, an Air NZ Airbus A320 and a Fiji Airways B737.

First up are the two currently flying Pilatus PC12/45's, ZK-PLZ and ZK-PLS, which are operated by Sounds Air. They have obviously not had their planned repaint, which will be very welcome when that happens. Sounds Air's third PC12 has been repainted and is now undergoing scheduled pre-entry refurbishment.

Next up is a Fairchild SA227-CC Metroliner, ZK-POF, which is operated by Airwork. As previously noted, these aircraft are about to the sold [maybe scrapped, but I guess probably sold], so it won't be long until all we have are memories of these fine aircraft.

Air New Zealand continue to acquire more Airbus A320-232's. This one, ZK-OXF, is July 2014 addition to the fleet.

Last up are two more pictures of a Fiji Airways operated Boeing 737-808, DQ-FJN. This is the same aircraft as seen last weekend.
