From the digital shoebox

As you will see in a subsequent post, my Wellington Airport album on Flickr had nearly reached 1,000 images. Having spent a long time in my photo library of late, I had spotted a few aircraft that never made it to Flickr publication and so to get my album up to the magic 1,000, I decided to trawl through and see if I could find enough of that ilk to hit the mark.

Widebody wonder

I managed to get to the airport today just in time to see the third arrival of Singapore Airlines’ SQ291 flight from Singapore and Canberra, along with quite a few other spotters, as this was the first arrival on a weekend day.

Throwback

There are close to 1,000 photos in my Wellington Airport album on Flickr and I’ve been planning a little something to celebrate reaching the milestone. While I was going over the contents of the album, it struck me there was something missing.

Propstar

I went out to Wellington Airport again today with the express purpose of photographing a Jetstar DHC-8 Q300 which have so far eluded me.

One down

I took a week off work this week and decided to head out to Wellington Airport today to see what would show up, with specific hopes to catch two types I’ve not photographed in action before. I succeeded with one of them.

Welly, Welly, Welly, Oi, Oi, Oi

It was a heck of a weekend just gone, with no less than three visits to Wellington Airport for the purposes of picking up and dropping off family members. As the appointed chauffeur, I took my opportunities to train my camera on activities as time allowed. I did this both from some of my usual spots around the airport and also from inside the terminal.

First of 2016

I managed to mis-time a short trip out to Wellington Airport earlier in the week. Too late to meet up with someone and too early to see much in the way of movements. I only took a handful of shots and three made the grade.

In the beginning

A while ago I had written on the old site about the origins of ZKARJ on the web and had mentioned the AeroImage branding.

Recently I was going through some very old backups – I can’t remember why – when I came across an archive of the AeroImage site. What I discovered there jogged my memory that AeroImage was not the first!
