Hey, I live in Wellington and I've always thought it was and is the most rough and ready port to fly in and out of. I fly regularly for work and feel secure in the fact that our pilots are not just skilled and brave, but excited about the prospect of increasing their abilities.
With regard to the clip, I think most Wellingtonions, like me, would feel that they were on at least one of the flights screened.
And I've been on a couple that the pilot's aborted, one made me not only miss my dinner at home, but landed me back at the port I initially departed from.
The worst personally from WLG
was the port side tyres blowing out on an F27 landing in 1980 due to excessive cross winds on landing. Crazily terrifying as steel grated on tarmacced runway once the rubber bounced away!
Come fly into our town! WLG
