China Airlines A350-900, B-18207

Well it sure is good to see another airline operate the A350 into Auckland.

China Airlines has become the second airline to operate the type into Auckland, along with Cathay Pacific.

Been trying to get some decent shots before the winter sets in and the days getting shorter which will make it hard to get some pics as the arrivals will be in the dark for winter.

Well lucky to get these of B-18207 arriving on the 6th April in the last of the Golden Hour.

Air New Zealand B777-200ER, ZK-OKD Moon Shot

Well I've been trying for years waiting to get a shot like this one, and at last finally managed to get one. It could have been a lot better if I had a better camera and lens.

Shot taken 2 weeks ago from home of Air New Zealand's B777-200ER, ZK-OKD downwind for 23L.

Airbus A350-1000 Arrives in Auckland

Well it finally arrived, and it sure was great to see this new model of the A350 family.

This A350-1000, F-WLXV is the latest model of the variant, and is on a round the world promotional sales tour being shown to prospective airlines, and Air New Zealand, are interested in this very nice and Ultra Long Range competitor to the B787. I guess we will all have to see what happens in the future.

 Well it was rather dark when F-WLXV arrived but was well worth the trip to get these shots.
