At the Great Barrier hangar at North Shore today, there was a lot of activity going on dismantling their three Britten Norman Trislanders. These aircraft have been inactive at North Shore for quite a long while.
You can see a rack of spare wings in the background.
These three aircraft are still registered to Great Barrier Airlines Flight Operations Ltd which is the old Great Barrier Airlines. Their current fleet (including Islander ZK-FVD in the background) is registered to Great Barrier Airlines Ltd and painted up as Barrier Air You can see more about the new airline at http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.co.nz/2015/08/barrier-air-new-name-to-barrier-and.html.
Does anyone know where they are going?
