A dull Christchurch day.

A very dull day at Christchurch International today - meteorologically speaking - with a thick altocumulus/altostratus North West Arch overhead.
 During my mid morning buzz though I managed to capture two aircraft that have not graced this blog until now.
Above is the Piper PA-28-180D Cherokee ZK-DFL (c/n 28-4720). DTI imported it and it first flew in NZ on 03-07-1971 and went up to the Northern Wairoa Aero Club at Dargaville in January of 1972. It had at least thirteen more owner/operators before becoming part of the Kapiti Districts Aero Club at Paraparaumu from 28-03-2002.
On the other side of the Field was the Bombardier DHC-8-311 ZK-NFA2 (c/n 659) of Air Nelson Ltd. This has been in country since May of 2008.
