Auckland to Wellington by Air New Zealand 11-2-2016

To follow in Blue Bus's wheel-tracks, first I had to get to Wellington, and I enjoyed a pleasant flight down with Air New Zealand.  I was fortunate to be allocated window seat 3A.

 Our aircraft for Flight NZ 439 was their  newest A 320: ZK-OXK.

 Window seat 3A enabled good views of a couple of big brother heavies -Emirates A 380 A6-EEL.

 and Singapore Airlines A 380 9V-SKK.

 A takeoff view showing six of Air New Zealand's domestic A 320s at the terminal, plus us makes seven!.

Approaching Wellington from over Cook Strait showing Evan's Bay and Lyall Bay with the harbour and the Orongorongos in the background.  As you can see you can't beat Wellington on a good day.

Turning onto finals allowed an oblique shot of the airport.

While taxying in allowed an airside photo of Air New Zealand trans-Tasman A 320 ZK-OJI being readied for departure.
