Volcanic Air, De Havilland DHC-3, ZK-VAS

On a recent visit to Rotorua on a very foggy back dropped morning I managed to get this shot of Volcanic Airs De Havilland DHC-3 Otter, ZK-VAS parked on super still and calm morning on the lake. The fog was thick on the late and made for backdrop behind the photo.
It was right on sunrise so changed the camera setting three time and came up with three different effects.

Royal Australian Air Force, F-18 Hornet's

Back to Ohakea from earlier in the year at the RNZAF Air Tattoo, Air Show and time to show some pics I got of the visiting Royal Australian Air Force F-18 Hornets.

I think the F-18 is an awesome machine and it sure does put on a good show.
Was prefect weather and I do have others photos, and will share in a different post.

Last B767-300ER Departs, ZK-NCG

Another chapter in the history books closed, with the last departure of the last remaining Air New Zealand B767-300ER, ZK-NCG on the 28th June 2017.

ZK-NCG had the honour of being the last B767 remaining in Auckland to depart New Zealand shores for good, and relegating the B767-300ER to Air NZ history books.

With a perfect blue winter sky, my last photos of NCG before it departed for Alice Springs.

Farewell Retired B767-300ER, ZK-NCI

Air New Zealand's retired B767-300ER, ZK-NCI has left New Zealand for the last time, on Saturday the 24th Jun 2016, as NZ6011, destination, Alice Springs, Australia.

ZK-NCI is the second to last B767-300ER to leave after being retired from service, only leaving ZK-NCG left yet to depart.

So it was great to get these one last time photos of ZK-NCI on a rather grey and wet Saturday before she left our shores for good. Farewell NCI.

Qantas B747-400, VH-OEG

Once a regular sight in Auckland was the Qantas B747-400's, but no longer.

However today the 23rd of June,  Auckland had the pleasure of visit by a Qantas B747-400, 
VH-OEG, carrying a load of the British Lions Rugby supporters ahead of the first Test Match of the
All Blacks vs British Lions at Eden Park on Saturday night.

It sure is good to see my favourite aircraft of all time, the B747-400, passenger version, back in town
