Two by Two at Auckland International 21-10-16

There was an interesting selection of aircraft in the Air Chathams and Airwork area yesterday.

Two of Air Chathams General Dynamics Allison Convair 440/580s were parked up.

 ZK-CIF2 (c/n 399)

 and ZK-CIE2 (c/n 381).

 Airwork's two Fokker F 27 Mk 500 Friendships ZK-PAX2 (c/n 10596) and ZK-POH (c/n 10680) were parked up awaiting sale.

 As were two of their Fairchild SA 227 Metroliners ZK-POF (c/n CC-844B)

 and ZK-POB (c/n AC-606B).

And a couple of ropey photos of two aircraft who are cousins:

The Israel Aircraft Industries 1124A Westwind ZK-PJA (c/n 339) is registered to Aviation Services and Consultancy Ltd of Nelson, but I think it has been at Auckland International for some time (the long grass is not growing up around the aircraft but is on a rise inside the fence).  This aircraft is ex ZK-RML (re-registered on 30/9/14), and does not appear to have been covered on the blog previously.

The IAI 1124A Westwind was developed from the Jet Commander 1121,

and this is the family link to the last aircraft - the Rockwell Turbo Commander 690A ZK-PVB (c/n 11321), which has been owned by Air Chathams since 1/3/16.
