Hello everyone as many of you will know New Zealand is currently in lock down due to the current Pandemic. With New Zealand being in lock down the national Flag Carrier has started grounding its aircraft mainly at NZCH and NZAA. Today I took a quick stop at the airport to see these beautiful birds sun bathing in the typical Canterbury sun.
These aircraft are parked at the Antarctic area which isn’t currently being used by the usually C17s, C130s and 747SP.
Air New Zealand also have a number of ATR and A320 aircraft grounded at NZCH however they where a lot harder to reach and due to current isolation reasons I didn’t try and capture them but here is some photos taken by Stuff a New Zealand News page.
Lastly the beautiful ATR aircraft standing proud to still wear the native fern on its belly which I couldn’t get a photo of 😢. Both ZK-OAB and ZK-MVA are currently grounded in NZCH those two aircraft Both wear the Beautiful All Blacks livery. Let’s hope to see these jets back where they belong serving Aotearoa.
Kia Kaha Everyone and stay safe my friends
