Christchurch on Friday the 20th

 Tony McFarlin also covered the action at Christchurch International on Friday.
Here we have three of his offerings.
This is the first visit to Christchurch of the Texel Air Ltd Boeing 737-8BK BCF ZK-TXA c/n 33013.
Briefly this was built as D-ABBK and first flew on 18-04-2003 for lease to Air Berlin followed by a lease to British Airways for operation by Comair as ZS-ZWU.
 It became N739CE for TPX Aircraft Solutions Inc on 16-02-2023 and was converted to a freighter in China during February to September.
It was delivered into Auckland via Davao City and Port Morseby on 28-09-2023 - moving down to Hamilton the following day for its NZ certification.
It became ZK-TXA on 18-10-2023.

The Gulfstream GVII-G600 N1955M c/n 73087 was travelling under 'cloak mode' within the Bank of Utah books and was looked after by GCH Aviation.

This Bombardier CL-600-2B18 N89 c/n 5815 is from the Federal Aviation Administration, Oklahoma City. It began life in Canada as C-FZLA followed by N605BX with Bombardier Aerospace before delivery to the FAA.
It is likely to do a calibration flight to the Deep South in the next few days.
