Gisborne to Auckland

This post recounts the final part of my journey back to Auckland from Wings over Wairarapa...
Whakatane on 25 January 2013 was very quiet with only CTC Aviation Training (NZ)'s Cessna 172 ZK-CTP arriving just as I got there.  

Airborne from Tauranga later on the 25th was Cessna 172 ZK-ELY

...while another CTC Aviation Training (NZ) Cessna 172 ZK-JMC was in the circuit.

A long way from home, Anatoki Helicopters' Aerospatiale Squirrel ZK-HWF at Tauranga on 25 January 2013. 

Tecnam P2006T at Tauranga on 25 January 2013.

A new one for me was Europa Tri Gear ZK-POG.

A surprise was Vincent Aviation's BAe Jetstream 32 ZK-VAH operating an Eagle service from Auckland on 25 January 2013.

Operating Island Air's Motiti Island service were Cessna 172 ZK-WGE on the 25th and Cessna 206 ZK-WWH arriving back on 26 January 2013. 

Another one for me was Tecnam P96 Golf ZK-KER at Pauanui on 26 January 2013

Up at Whitianga Piper Pawnee ZK-CEB was on tow-plane duties while Coromandel Helicopter's Robinson R44 ZK-HJZ was waiting for some customers 

A surprise visitor to Whitianga was Mainland Air's Cessna 152 ZK-NST.

At Thames everything seemed to be covered or engineless... powered by a 550 SHP Walter turboprop engine is Super Air's covered Fletcher ZK-BHG on 26 January 2013. 

Engineless in Thames... Cessna 185 ZK-CKT 

Covered in Thames... Cessna 210 Centurion ZK-DCA

Piper PA28 Cherokee 180 ZK-DEA

Another engineless one at Thames - Cessna 172 ZK-EHN.
