Different colours, different grass

I went flying again today, with a couple of other Wellington Aero Club members. We headed up to Otaki airstrip, which is a nice grass airstrip just south of Otaki township. It is plenty long enough - even with the displaced thresholds, the landing distance is 730 meters with a very gentle slope.

I hope to have some photos in the next few days from a passenger. When these arrive, I'll put them up in another post.

From the photos I did manage to get today are a couple of Airbus A320's, with slightly different colours.

First up is a Jetstar Airbus A320-232, VH-VGF. The livery on this one is quite different to the standard Jetstar livery. The two photos show both sides of the aircraft.

Last up is an Air NZ Airbus A320-232, ZK-OAB. It looks as though the nose has been replaced, but no black paint job as yet. As has been suggested by others, a nice red nose in time for Christmas could be a good idea!
