Spotting - Wellington and Christchurch NZ

Back with some more spotting content, this time from 2 of the 3 biggest airports in NZ - Wellington and Christchurch. Was nice to head down south for some more traffic variety and capture some heavies. Enjoy!

You absolutely should mate, I’m sure you’d love it!

Thanks! This was actually taken from a hill near the airport runway which gives a cool air to air perspective, without having to spend the money on renting a heli 😂
