Descending through the valley on what has to be one of the world's best approaches, flying into Queenstown. We have yet to make our 300 degree turn around the small mountain visible partly off the edge on the right to line up for runway 23. The airport itself is visible just behind the aforementioned mountain. What a ride! [Canon EOS 20D]

This photo shows the beauty of this great country. Having been here many times and flown this approach, I recomend that EVERYONE should come here.

The road (at the top) is very close to the approach and I have seen many people shooting there it is great spot and has to the best approach on earth.

Great shot, the river below is the lower Shotover, the road behind the threshold of R/Way 23 is the Remarkables Road. You will no doubt have crossed the small Lake ahead - Lake Hayes flying between Morvern Ferry Hill (left) and Slope Hill (right). The local VOR is located on Slope Hill (visible in your pic)
