First Black Beech visit to the West Coast?



Captured departing from Christchurch on the afternoon of 10 February as NZ2864 to Hokitika was Black Beech 1900D ZK-EAG, perhaps marking the first visit of one of the black birds to the Coast.

On the subject of Hokitika (NZHK/HKK), as from 09 February the runway direction changed as a result of the magnetic variation and subsequent shift.  The main runway has moved from being 04/22 to 03/21.

The last runway orientation change I can recall was at Woodbourne (NZWB/BHE) when 07/25 became 06/24 a couple of years ago.

  1. Interesting that 04/22 changes but 13/31 doesn't
