A DHC8 and an ATR72

Last Saturday, in between the brief excitement of the returning ATR72, I shot these pictures of a Eastern Australia Airlines-operated DHC8 and a Mount Cook Airline/ Air NZ-operated ATR72.

As you can see, it was a bit gloomy all day, although until you went north, the cloud was high enough for most of the Aero Club's activities, with only a light breeze and the threatened rain not eventuating. All-in-all, a nice day for a fly for those that did get up.

First up is an Eastern Australia Airlines-operated [Jetstar branded] Bombardier DHC-8-315, VH-TQL taking off.
