A Christchurch dawn breaker

A dawn visitation to Christchurch International.
 The Keith Neylon Beech V3B5 ZK-EDJ (c/n D-9224) up from Invercargill, overnighted on the Eastern grass near the end of runway 29, along with the Piper PA-31-350 Navajo ZK-KVW (31-7752004) of Enfield Holdings which has been there for a couple of days.
Both carry a coating of frost.
 Both departed just after noon.
 Another fine Canterbury dawn.
 Lurking in the distance was the Gulfstream G-IV N473CR (c/n 1194) of Air Lake Lines III Inc carrying Robert Zimmerman.
 Being pushed back is the Airbus A320 ZK-OAB.
 Taxying out to 02 is Airbus A320 ZK-OXA.
 And ZK-OXB.
With VH-VGH doing likewise.
 Then we have the Boeing 767-381F VH-EFR (33510) as listed to Express Freighters Australia Pty Ltd (Qantas Freight) going out on 20.
As did Jetconnect (Qantas NZ) 737-838 (c/n 341850  ZK-ZQE.
Keeping an eye on the proceedings.
