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…
It’s been a while since I visited Wellington Airport with the sole purpose of taking photographs, but today was such a day.
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.
In my second catch-up post, I’ve included a handful of shots from a brief trip I made to Auckland in September.
Forgive my not posting here in a long, long time. That thing called life has been getting in the way of having time to process all my photos, let alone write about them. But the wait is over.
It’s been a while! My last post was in November and it’s now well into March. I’ve not had a lot to share since then but thought it worth an update now.
Undoubtedly to cater for demand resulting from the football world cup match held in Wellington today, Air New Zealand laid on some extra flights including two from Auckland to Wellington using Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, ZK-NZF.
I had a day off work, the sun was out, and I was encouraged to leave the house. You know what happened next.
With this being the last day of my “holiday” I decided the sunshine was a good reason to head out to Wellington Airport for my first visit of 2017, and just in time to watch the Singapore Airlines 777 landing again.
I mentioned back in August that my Flickr album for Wellington Airport was nearing 1,000 images. After a recent cleanup of my photo collection, the album stood at 992 photos. Rather than wait until I had 8 new images to publish, I decided to trawl back through my collection for unpublished gems and they were the subject of my previous post.
Which brings us to the magic 1,000 photos and the promised “something special” to mark the occasion.
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.
