When I got a tip off this morning about the All Blacks 777 being in town, my decision to go spotting this afternoon was made even easier.
For my friend Diego Mancilla
Departing 27L in the last of the days light as ANZ1 to Los Angeles LAX
NZ105 Auckland ->- Sydney sat here for a while as the pilots worked the procedure of starting the engines with no APU.
Landing 27L in early winter light
NZ2 arriving shortly after a heavy rain shower. Note the nice condensations and vapour trails over and behind the wings. Short final 09L.
ANZ105 taxiing to the International terminal after arriving on 16L.
