Today has mostly lovely weather with bright sunshine and clear skies.... except if you're near the airport or the southern parts of Wellington where we are being enveloped in lovely, cooling, relaxing fog! Clearly I am happier with the temperature in the mid-late teens [celsius] then the mid-late 20's!

It was still all on at Wellington Airport albeit with some delays. As you'll see in some of the photos, there was no fog north of the aerodrome, and with the gentle southerly breeze, this made for easy arrivals.

The first photo is of a Boeing 737-8X2, DQ-FJH, operated by Fiji Airways landing with the very very low cloud in the background.

Next up is a look across the runway to the Eastern Apron. Yep, that fog is pretty much at the top of the building [or not much above].

Off the airport and up Mount Victoria, I looked south-east to capture this photo of the northern end of the runway. As you can see, the runway [or at least the start of it] is quite visible, and as the last photo will show, north of here is no fog at all! Sneaking into view of an Airbus A320-232, VH-VGD, operated by Jetstar Airways. This aircraft was about to depart to Gold Coast, Australia, where I'm sure it was brighter, sunnier and warmer!

Last up is a picture of an unidentified Mount Cook Airline ATR72 on approach... no fog just all sunshine!
