Not normally something to get excited about, but with the recent loosening of rules, this was the first day I have been able to get out and see a couple of aircraft flying around.
First up is an Air New Zealand-operated Bombardier DHC-8-311, ZK-XXX. As has been noted elsewhere, these are now using Air NZ callsigns, so instead of Link 1234
, it's now New Zealand 1234 Lima
[and ex Mount Cook flights being NZ1234 Mike

The second aircraft os a Cessna 510 Citation Mustang, ZK-VXM. This aircraft is operated by Skyline Aviation of Hawkes Bay. Given the restrictions on travel, my guess is it would have been operating an essential services charter or air ambulance.

Lastly, it's great to be out and seeing some aviation happening! Hopefully it won't be too long until I can get back into the cockpit myself. I'm sure the Nanchang is feeling a bit lonely these days...!
