I think it is one of the Air Chathams plane, built in the 50's. That probably tells you enough. Don't expect too much.

Don't know too much about the fun of flying in a superb vintage prop do you?
|Quoting Curmudgeon (Reply 4):|
What do you want to know about the airplane?
|Quoting ZKSUJ (Reply 2):
NZ747 has. I remember hearing about it when he got back from Fiji in the December holidays. I'm sure he'd shed some light

Had a hilarious anecdote or two about the Twin Otters they use on this run!!

Get a window at the very aft end
|Quoting NZ747 (Reply 8):|
Had many interesting times on that route. Blood smeared on the windscreen ( I hope from a bird), Engine failure on approach to Nadi. Fuel leaking from wing (noticed by pax just prior to our take off), being almost booked on their fatal flight that crashed killing all in 1999, pax screaming because of the turbulence from the high volcanic terrain, stoned looking pilots, cockroaches all over the cabin..im sure theres more.

Air Fiji Convair 580 for the SVU-NAN return leg.
|Quoting Jafa39 (Reply 9):|
Gee thanks.....I think
Why do you avoid Air Fiji....something I should know or is it just delays, missing ticket issues??
|Quoting LH459 (Reply 11):|
I had no idea there were CV580s operating it now!
