Wellington Back on 14-12-2018

A couple of weeks ago when I was down in Wellington, I found a new spot (for me) on the Maupuia Peninsula to catch a few aircraft flying into Wellington in a light Southerly.  A couple of weeks delay doesn't really matter much as the 3 aircraft that arrived over 12 minutes could have been from more than 10 years ago.

Teal tailed Air New Zealand Q 300 ZK-NED2 (although it doesn't have the Pacific Wave.).

Followed by Teal tailed ZK-NEJ.  The Air New Zealand fleet guide in their Koru magazine lists that they have 23 Q 300s in their fleet and I saw 5 still with the Teal tails in Wellington.

Then the RNZAF's Boeing 757 NZ 7571 flew past on the glide slope not standing out too much in its low viz scheme.

  1. By my reckoning there are presently 8 Q300s still in the original livery: NED,E,F,G,H,J,K and O. In the transition to the black and white scheme they were painted, starting with NEQ, consecutively through to NFI and then NEA,B and C followed most recently by NEM but in the All Black scheme.
