built year 1957 and still in service, even with a fresh new paint!
A classic Convair about to head out to the Chatham Islands with a heavy on final for 23L in the distance.
I hoped for a nice pic of an Air Chatams Convair during our time in new Zealand. But I never expected to see this one in Queenstown...
Coming in to land on 23L.

Great to see this old smoker.
Cheers Johnny, and to the boys who fly these Island hoppers at Air Chats.
Taxi to the gate after landing on 05R.
Take off from 05R in the morning sun.
Resting in the sun...
"A blast from the past".........not often you see wire HF aerials these days....and I love the sound of the Allisons
