DHL Freighter B767-300F, G-DHLH

Tasman Air Cargo currently have a new freighter flying the Auckland - Sydney - Auckland run, while VH-TCA the B757 is away for maintenance I believe.

The replacement is a DHL B767-300F, G-DHLH and it was nice to see it arriving in daylight hours after running late from Sydney. Usually a night flyer.

Hi Fly Visits Again...

Hi Fly to the rescue again for Air New Zealand, seeing a second visit to Auckland for their
A340-300, 9H-FOX.

9H-FOX was chartered for a 3 week period to cover the Auckland - Honolulu - Auckland, NZ10/9 flights due to the B787-9 engine issues again affecting Air New Zealand.

Got these shots of NZ9 arriving from Honolulu a few days before the contracted ended and 9H-FOX left NZ again.

Very Rare Visitor - Illyushin 76

Well this sure is a very rare moment and a first I believe into New Zealand.

This is the People Liberation Army Air Force arriving in their Illyushin 76, 21047, at the RNZAF Whenuapai Base on Saturday 9th June.

This sure is my first time seeing this aircraft type and, finally got a shot, and probably wont be seeing to many more visitors like this. Good to see it arrive in daylight hours and the sun kind of out.
