Meat bombing and more at Taupo

While waiting for my trip home to Wellington, I took the opportunity to capture a few pictures of the local happenings.

Taupo is well known for its sky diving and so it is little wonder that most of the flights were associated with people deliberately falling out of a perfectly good aircraft [fools! ha ha ha]. Top to bottom in this set of photos are:

Pacific Aerospace 750XL, ZK-JQK, operated by Tandem Skydiving Ltd
Pacific Aerospace 750XL, ZK-SDT, operated by Skydive Taupo Ltd
2 x GAF N22C, ZK-SNZ, operated by Tandem Skydiving Ltd
Lastly, tandem jumper about to land


In addition to these, were a couple of other interesting pictures to be had. First up is a local rescue helicopter, a Eurocopter AS350B2, ZK-HZJ, operated by Search and Rescue Services Ltd. Next is a Cessna U206F, ZK-RPM, operated by TAM Flight Ltd of a Mt Maunganui address. lastly, it's great to see an airport that provides for GA pilots as well as the airlines :-)
