On an early pie run this week I caught the GCH Aviation Ltd's Westpac Air Rescue Airbus MBB-BK117 D-2 ZK-IGI (c/n 20223) on its pad.
On the other side of the field the MD 500N NOTAR ZK-IGA (c/n LN078) arrives back at base at Christchurch Helicopters Ltd.
And surprise of the day was the the Bell 429 Global Ranger "Police 3" (c/n 57049) which was in Town on Royal duties.
Over the fence we have the Jetstar Airbus A320-232 VH-VGF (c/n 4497) in from Auckland.
Same aircraft as seen through the heat haze.
Then we see the Fairchild SA227-CC Metro 23 ZK-POF (c/n CC-844B) of Air Chathams Ltd.
And again - through the heat haze.
Parked over at the Canterbury Aero Club was the Cessna 172S Skyhawk SP ZK-JSD2 c/n 17210260 down from Air Hawkes Bay Ltd of Hastings.
