Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - October 2018

Police are only Digital in AKL and maybe WLG/CHC. The rest of the country is analogue last I heard. So it's the flight tracking software blocking it vs the Helicopter itself? Probably same reason very few military flights are trackeable. They either turn off or don’t have an ADS-S transponder. Didn...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - October 2018

Is this the reason though? Due to safety, security and criminal activity Eagle has been blocked on flight tracking software. The same reason why police went digital on their radios Police are only Digital in AKL and maybe WLG/CHC. The rest of the country is analogue last I heard. So it's the flight...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - September 2018

What are these Virgin planes at Nelson? I haven't heard anything about this to date. Some ex Virgin ATR's. A quick google should pull something up - http://nzcivair.blogspot.com/2017/07/virgin-atrs-at-nelson-today.html I said a few months ago Air Chathams should pick up a ATR or two... Must be a bi...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - July 2018

planemanofnz and NZ6 seriously, both of you often make good posts. But this is getting beyond a joke. I agree, same thing as last month, and the month before. Like I suggested in early June (which got deleted), arrange to meet in an airport carpark and duke it out with weapons of your choosing, ie:...

On my bucket list is PER-LHR LHR-LAX (NZ 1) Than QF LAX SYD SYD PER. That would be awesome. 787-9, 747-400, A380, 737-800.

NZ1 hasn’t been a 747 for quite a few years. 773 now.

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - December 2017

It doesn't seem to have been mentioned here, but yesterday there was an unplanned 12-hour shutdown of the fuel pipeline from Marsden Point to Wiri (which is used for aviation fuels, as well as for motor gasoline and other fuel products) due to a leak alarm activating. Apparently it was a false alarm...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - September 2017

ANZ haven't quietly started CHC/BHE again have they? Sitting in Blenheim having lunch and saw NZ972, an ATR coming in to land. FlightAware shows it's from CHC, but the 972 looks like it may be a relocating flight?

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - August 2017

Convair ZK-KFH is doing freight runs tonight. I assume CHC as that is where it has been recently. Good to have freight convairs working again alongside the 737 classics. The Convairs have been chugging up and down the country for the last couple of months. It is certainly less than before they got ...
