Landing on Runway 34L in some stunning evening light. Dedicated to my close friend Chiara.
ZK-OKH seen on final for runway 26R at Vancouver International Airport, from Auckland, New Zealand.
Hobbit departure to LAX turning right out of runway 09R
Air New Zealand's Hobbit plane with Smaug the dragon about to touch down on 24R from Heathrow.
Delivered new to Air New Zealand 27/10/99. Her time with the company is limited in 2014.
"Kaikoura" taxiing for departure with what is clearly enough fuel for the long haul service to Los Angeles as NZ6. NBT has since been scrapped at Goodyear, PHX.
Very lucky to catch the Air New Zealand's Smaug the Dragon lining up at London Heathrow for her long departure back to Auckland via Los Angeles.
"The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey" rolls down outbound NZ.
Loving this angle of NCJ as she gets prepped for NZ105 to Sydney after getting towed over from the hardstand. [1600px]
