Air New Zealand B767-300ER, ZK-NCK

Back on the 4th July 2016, Air New Zealand's recently retired B767-300ER, ZK-NCK departed Auckland for the very last time. Operating a delivery flight to Alice Springs, Australia for the new owners.

Not sure if ZK-NCK in still in Alice Springs, but after arriving on the 4th July, NCK was due to stay there until the new owners decided fly her again.

Well here's my photo's I got of ZK-NCK leaving Auckland for the last time on what was a rather cold and very dull winters day.

Singapore B747-400F & Air New Zealand A320

Well I'm slowly getting use to the new camera and the conditions were perfect for testing it out during the late golden hour a few weeks back on a very clear late winter early spring afternoon.

Air New Zealand B787-9, ZK-NZC

Sorry for not posting many photos lately, been busy with others things on the go.

Back last month I was in Nadi, Fiji, on a very short visit and got these photos of Air New Zealand's B787-9, ZK-NZC and my ride back to Auckland as NZ55.

The weather sure was nice and warm, wish I could have stayed.
