Air Kaszhikstan (SP) In Christchurch, NZ

Sun May 06, 2001 3:41 pm

I was in CHC yesterday for the arvo and I saw a plane I would never have imagined to see, let alone at CHC.

It was an Air K 767 aircraft!

Does anyone know what it was doing in CHC?

Hi Jase:

Hmmm.. Well, the only guess I could make is that perhaps it's there for maintenance work to be carried out by Air NZ - I thot Air NZ has a large maintenance facility in CHC?... Maybe that's why...
