  • Autumn Update

    Autumn Update

    I had a sense it had been a while since my last update, but I see it’s less than a month! I will try to keep more up to date than I have done in recent years. Just a motley collection of shots from April at Wellington. First up, a common sight that won’t be…

  • New and Exciting

    New and Exciting

    In recent months, I have captured two new-to-me types. (Well, almost.) Qantas started up a new service between Brisbane (BNE) and Wellington (WLG). From what I have heard, they selected the Embraer E190 aircraft to gauge demand, rather than the usual trans-Tasman Boeing 737-800s used into Wellington. The latest news is they will soon up-gauge…

  • Wellington Noteworthy

    Wellington Noteworthy

    It has been a long time since I posted here. Again. I’m going to remedy that with not one but six new posts. I’ll schedule them to roll out over the next week or two. First up is a selection of more interesting aircraft taken at Wellington International Airport since my last post in July…

    A trio of out-of-the-ordinary colour schemes.

  • I’m Still Here!

    I’m Still Here!

    I just checked and the last time I posted on the blog was December 2021! I also counted 12 posts for 2021 and so far none for 2022 and it’s half gone already. That’s not because I haven’t been taking photos, but because I’ve not taken very many and there’s not a whole lot of…

  • Winter Wellington

    Winter Wellington

    It felt like such a long time since I last posted that I was sure I had failed to blog about plenty of visits to Wellington Airport, but on investigation there is only my most recent visit this last week. I was taking some encouraged time off work and decided to head out to see what…

    Welly winter wings

    Aside from my extensive remastering work this year (over 500 photos remastered up to this point!) I have only made a handful of visits to Wellington International Airport since the last post on the subject, and all of those within the last 5 weeks. To be precise, 4 visits in 5 weeks. Herewith, a sampling…

  • End of break visit

    End of break visit

    I’ve been enjoying a three week break from work over Christmas and New Year, but only managed to get in a trip to the airport with camera and sun on Friday. My chief goal was to catch the Singapore Airlines Airbus A350 arriving from one of my usual spots, as I have only seen it at…

  • Boeing, Boeing, gone

    Boeing, Boeing, gone

    I didn’t realise it at the time, but the pictures I published mid-October of the Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-200ER would be my last of the type at Wellington. Only 9 more flights followed that one before the type was retired from the route. While it was quite exciting to have such a large aircraft as…

  • Spring sunshine

    It’s been a while since I visited Wellington Airport with the sole purpose of taking photographs, but today was such a day.

  • Merry Christmas from Air New Zealand

    Merry Christmas from Air New Zealand

    Here it is. Probably my final post of 2018 and bringing me bang up to date. Wellington got a special visitor on Christmas Eve in the shape of Air New Zealand’s first Airbus A321neo, ZK-NNA.

  • Almost caught up!

    Almost caught up!

    In what I had hoped to be my final catch-up post, I will show you a selection of types I have captured in the latter half of 2018 out at ‘my local’ — Wellington International Airport. But there’s yet another catch-up post to come with a rather special new type. Keep your eyes peeled for another…
