A quick peak over the fence at Christchurch International Airport this afternoon found the Britten-Norman BN-2A-26 Islander ZK-EVO (c/n 785). It wears 'Fly My Sky' marks on its fuselage side and what looks like its old 'Aspiring Air' insignia near the top of its tail.
After Aspiring Air ceased operations it was noted at Invercargill in early 2013 with an ownership change to Commercial Helicopters Ltd (who trade as Fly My Sky) of Taumaranui on 19-12-2014.

On the Western side of the field the Bell 206B JetRanger II ZK-HRS2 (c/n 877) of Christchurch Helicopters 2001 Ltd was just winding down. Note the spray tank and boom fitted.
Just clearing the pad, and a helicopter that we don't often see in town, was the Robinson R44 Raven II ZK-HXM3 (c/n 10637) as listed with Fiordland Enterprises Ltd of Te Anau.
Back over on the 'Deep Freeze' pad was the NASA DC8-72 (NASA817) N817NA on a special mission.
