Britten Norman BN2A-20 Islander ZK-PIY msn 344 seen taxing and on departure yesterday. This aircraft has recently been painted in a special livery to mark Great Barrier Island being made the worlds third Dark Sky Sanctuary earlier this month. The sparsely populated island with no mains power is regarded as one of the best places in the world for star gazing. Note the clever alteration of the airline name by operator Fly My Sky.
