Odds and sods from Wellington

Here are a few odds and sods from Wellington International.

The first two are of a General Dynamics Allison Convair 440/580 of Pionair ZK-PAL after landing at Wellington. Following that are two ex-Origin Pacific Airlines Jetstream J41's, then a closeup of a beautiful Grumman American AA-5 ZK-DLH. Lastly, a picture of an Air National Jetstream J31/32.

A couple of microlights

Here are pictures of two microlights that I took photos of when in Nelson a while back. The first is a "Moyes Dragonfly C" and the second is a "Rans S-6ES Coyote II". Both of these are registered in the "Microlight Class 2" category. Personally, I think the first one would be the most interesting to fly [even if presumably a little slow.... and cold!].

Air New Zealand B737 landing at Wellington

Here is a view of landing aircraft that may not be so common... the top of a B737 on short final approach. For those that have been following this series, yes, we are still on the hill in Strathmore.
