A mid afternoon arrival at NZCH yesterday (03-06-2014) was the NASA Gulfstream V N677F (c/n 677) here for the Deepwave project. Check out :-
You can see at least four sensors protruding from the airframe.

With the B1900's starting to be withdrawn - I thought it time to get a few pics of them.
Here ZK-EAE (c/n UE-428) awaits its next batch of passengers.
Also arriving from northern nether regions was the Helio H-250 Courier ZK-TCE (c/n 2503) of Beckenham Hills Ltd.
Note the slats/slots and the "leading edge interceptors" (Spoilers) flush near the upper leading edge of the wing surface. These hinge up with the aileron
It is hard to believe that the Courier evolved from a somewhat modified Piper PA-17.
Two departures. Above the Airbus A320 VH-VFF (c/n 5039) tucking its gear away.
And Dash 8 ZK-NEO (c/n 633) scurries off.
Two Boeings 737's getting ready for a days work :- ZK-NGD and ZK-NGI
With ZK-NGK going nowhere.
