I managed these shots whilst cruising along at Christchurch the other day.
The Boeing 737-476 ZK-PAK (c/n 24444) of Airwork Flight Operations Ltd parked up for the day on the recently completed New Zealand Post complex at Christchurch International Airport.
The earlier history of this airframe can be found on our 'sister' mrcaviation blog HERE.
I can add that it was built as line number 2454 and rolled out at Renton on 09-03-1993, registered as VH-TJS to Australian Airlines on 12-03-1993 and first flew on 23-03-1993 and handed over to Australian Airlines on 05-04-1993.
It was ferried from Boeing Field to San Francisco, Honolulu, Apia, Nadi and into Melbourne on 16-04-1993.
It entered service on 20-04-1993 and was given the name 'Jabiru'.
Australian Airlines merged with QANTAS Airways on 31-10-1993 and it was transferred to Qantas Airways Ltd on 08-12-1993.
