I travelled down to Wellington last Thursday, and as usual I allowed enough time for a look see down at the Air New Zealand and Air Chathams maintenance areas:
I don't know how much utilisation Air New Zealand is getting from their Dreamliners but there were a lot of them sitting around at their maintenance base. There are 5 of the in this shot with another one obscured in the hangar. ZK-NZD and ZK-NZE were engine-less.
The latest Dreamliner ZK-NZR2
(c/n 65088/919) has been on the register since 22/10/19.
I must have just missed Richard Currie as I took an almost identical photo of the Air Chathams DC 3 ZK-AWP
. However I also caught the Convair 580 ZK-KFL behind the DC 3, and it seemed to have picked up some polystyrene on its bill.
The DC 3 is named "Skyliner Kaitaia" as it was originally with NAC from 1963 to 1972.
And from the domestic terminal carpark, Airwork's latest Boeing B 737-400 freighter ZK-TLM
(c/n 24813) which has been on the register since 10/12/19.
