9-11 in Auckland

Tuesday being my day off was an opportunity to get out to Auckland International and to do a drive by at Ardmore...

On the heavy side, Malaysian Airlines' Boeing 777-200 9M-MRE and Cathay Pacific's Airbus A340-300 B-HXC were on the ILS when I arrived. Photos taken at Auckland on 11 September 2012 by S Lowe

As two of Auckland International's foremost aviation spotters independently remarked, Isle of Man registered Bombardier BD-700 Global Express M-ATAR looked as if it was on delivery to Airwork with its rather bland white scheme. Meanwhile on departure was Gulfstream Aerospace GV-SP N595A.

Jetstar's Airbus 320 VH-VGA was a new one for me... Photo taken at Auckland on 11 September 2012 by S Lowe
On air ambulance duties were Fairchild Metroliner III ZK-LFT (above) and Skyline Aviation's Cessna 421 Golden Eagle ZK-MFT (below). Photos taken at Auckland on 11 September 2012 by S Lowe

While at Auckland it was great to meet Andrew of the Aviation Shotz blog fame (http://aviationshotzphotography.blogspot.co.nz/) and VJ of airliners.net fame.

Ardmore was rather damp but did get two that I didn't have Wanaka Flightseeing's Cessna 206 ZK-MIF and Helilink's Kawasaki BK-117 ZK-HOU. Photos taken at Ardmore on 11 September 2012 by S Lowe
