Base turn to final, lining up with Runway 34 at Napier after a short flight from Auckland. Thanks to the crew for such a wonderful flight and opportunity to fly in this vintage which has been well maintained since it started operations in 1957. Thanks also to Michael for the use of his lens. [Canon EOS 400D + Canon EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM]

"Bank angle, bank angle" :)...

Pretty impressive. More than enough to make some people think they'll fall overboard rs.
