Auckland to Wellington by Air New Zealand 17-5-2016

It was pleasant surprise to find that my Flight NZ 453 to Wellington on Tuesday afternoon was being provided by Air New Zealand's newest Airbus A 320 ZK-OXL (c/n 7086), which was only registered eight days earlier.  And even better, I had been allocated window seat 21A.

 ZK-OXL at the gate.

 Taxying out we passed the previous newest Air New Zealand A 320s:  ZK-OXJ (c/n 6694) .

 and ZK-OXK (c/n 6706).

 Lift off from Auckland International...

and a Southerly approach to Wellington, over Titahi Bay with the Paekakariki and Paraparaumu coastline in the distance.

 Over Newlands with Petone and the Hutt Valley spread out behind.

and on landing at Wellington showing the interior workings of a brand new Airbus A 320 wing.
