I must be back in Wellington...

... as I'm back to seeing Air NZ and other Wellington visitors.

First up are a couple of regulars.

ZK-OXE has been around for a while now. This is another of Air NZ's Airbus A320-232 aircraft which is used on domestic sectors.

Mount Cook Airline's ATR72's look really nice in the black and white fern livery. We'll see more of these as Air NZ expands it's fleet of later model ATR72's, to replace the older ones and to slightly increase the overall fleet size.

Last up is an Australian-registered aircraft, a Beech B300LW, VH-WCN. This is registered to a company called AVcair of a Hamilton [Queenland, Australia] address. AVcair appears to be a charter operated based in Brisbane, Australia.

Hi Rodney

Also a Cessna 210 pressurised Centurion N526CH at ExecJet today. It's been stooging around New Zealand for a while. Like so many US aircraft it's registered to a trust or holding company, so you can't see whose it actually is.

Hi Andrew,

Yeah, I see that's been sitting there for a couple of days at least. I have no idea where it's based in NZ even.

Anyone else know?

Hey guys, Rolls Royce turbine powered Centurion Silver Eagle N526CH lives at Ardmore. The owner is CFO of Fonterra.

That King Air you snapped is also going to live at Ardmore!

Thanks, Anonymous. Interesting to hear that the two are NZAR-based.
