As part of the world film premiere of the last in the trilology of the Lord of the Rings series, The Return of the King, Air New Zealand's Frodo 747 performed a flypast in Wellington New Zealand.

Wellington in situated in a basin, surrounded by high hills so the flypast took place at 1000ft. This video clip 2min and 50secs in, shows the beautiful sight of the flypast from a spotter plane.

This clip is 3mins long and will take a long time to download on a slow connection. Sorry, I can't edit it for just the flypast section. Perhasp someone could edit ? Or someone has some actual pictures.

Sorry about the film clip - it seems to have vanished off the news site I found it on. I'm hoping someone on A.Net took some photgraphs and will post them soon.
