A windy day in New Zealand (NZDN-NZAA)

Hello IFC!!

To celebrate the end of my school exams (If your from NZ you know), I completed a flight from NZDN-NZAA. This route takes you over the most breathtaking parts of New Zealand, and it is a reasonably short haul. Also I have slightly edited these pictures, just to make them look appealing. So sit back, make sure your tray tables are in the upright position and enjoy the pictures, thanks :)

Parked at a quiet Dunedin Intl

Back-taxi Runway 03

Leaving Dunedin and the amazing Otago Peninsula behind

Christchurch and Banks Peninsula, very windy, 120kts

Flying up the Southern Alps

The beautiful Marlborough Sound

Beginning decent into Auckland

“New Zealand 662 is on final, runway 23L”

Not my smoothest landing, but any landing you can walk away from is a good one

Parked at the gate as New Zealand 267 arrives from Wellington

Thanks for looking, any feedback would be massively appreciated :)


Wow that’s so cool I am from America so I don’t know how New Zealand exams are but that’s so cool I have never done a long/short haul flight ever but the scenery is so cool

Hey! Great pictures.

However, the rule of the #screenshots-and-videos category is that you can only post 10 photos per topic. You have 13. Please remove 3.

But again, great scenery and great photos! Keep it up!
