Yesterday, me and a bunch of fellow IFATCs went out and decided to fly a formation flight in the new A350 over the beautiful New Zeland. We had great fun with a formation takeoff, a few different formation setups in flight, a few breakups, a go around and a formation landing, and I think the photos that came out of it are incredible.
We flew on the Expert Server, from Ohakea (NZOH) to Wellington (NZWN) with a premade flight plan, but ended up extending it a bit to get more time to enjoy the planes and scenery.
Onto the Photos
Let me just get straight to it, here they are. Enjoy!
