Well its time again for some a selection of random shots with no particular subject matter. I think I'll try more of this and get a bit more creative if I can.

Sunset Departures...

There were sure some nice sunsets in the weekend, so a good excuse to get the camera out for some practice. The first shot is the DHL B757 Freighter, VH-TCA departing for Sydney and the second shot is Air New Zealand flight NZ8 departing for San Francisco.

Jeremy Clarkson Takes Flight....VH-TCA

Well these are kind of desperation shots, as it was really quite dark, and I am still trying to figure out how to set the correct settings on the camera for very very low light.

Well Tasman Air Cargo Airlines have applied Jeremy Clarkson to the tail of their Auckland based B757-200, VH-TCA, in promotion of his new TV series, "The Grand Tour"....

I'm looking forward to watching it....should be a laugh....

Welcome Back United Airlines

Good to see United Airlines back in Auckland for the summer months, and resuming flights from San Francisco after a break over the southern hemisphere winter.

United have also up gauged to the B777-300ER on the Auckland run, after initially planning on using the B787-9.

Some photos of the first arrival of UA917 from San Francisco operated by, N2136U, which also had the honours for being the first UA B777-300ER to visit Auckland.

Air Asia X A330-300, 9M-XXF

The colouring in department at Air Asia X is a very busy department.

Yet again their A330-300, 9M-XXF has been given a new colourful livery, this time in celebration of 10 years in service by the airline. They sure do a good job of making these special liveries colourful.

It would have been nice to have a sunny day with blue sky for these shots, but maybe next time.
