Nadi Trip

Last week I managed to experience Air New Zealand's B777-300ER service from Auckland to Nadi, Fiji onboard NZ56. This aircraft does not normally operate to the Pacific Islands, so was pretty happy to get to travel on ZK-OKP on the 2hour 35min flight to Nadi. Buisness Class was excellent, good food and fine service.

NZ56 ZK-OKP parked at Gate 3 in AKL

Arrived in Nadi, Hot at 34 Degrees

Head on at gate in Nadi

Head on !!!

These photos were taken on the south side of LAX in July this year while on a visit to Los Angeles.
Imperial Hill is a great place for viewing arrivals and departures on runways 25L/R at LAX.
