Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - July 2020

The Mangere pedestrian bridge is only a pedestrian bridge now as it was deemed too structurally unstable to be used for traffic into the future. I believe it's rumoured to be demolished in the coming years. On another topic however, I believe 777-300ERs will begin to re-enter service with ANZ from n...

Re: New Zealand Aviation Thread - July 2020

Either way I do believe it would both be most cost effective and least disruptive through Onehunga from my perspective.

What are the differences between the ATR 42 variants?

Scrolling through the ATR 42 variants listed on this site I've found myself some confusion in distinguishing them.
