Southbound Road Trip #2

This would have to rate as my worst ever road trip... From Whakatane around the East Cape to Gisborne... nothing!

Even Gisborne, where I normally score some interesting pics, was rather boring, just two that I already had...

Cessna 206 ZK-MHL at Gisborne on 29 November 2013

Operating the courier service to Wairoa and Napier was Air Napier's Piper Seneca ZK-MSL at Gisborne on 29 November 2013. Is ZK-NAP flying yet???????????

At Wairoa - Nothing
At Napier - Nothing
At Hastings - Nothing other than a rather very sad ex Air Chathams Beech Queenair... It deserves to be in the Chatham Island air museum.

At Waipukurau - Nothing
At Dannevirke - Nothing



  1. That's GA in NZ right now.

    Another triumph for CAA and/or AvSec.

  2. ZK-NAP is flying longer flights running in the engines

  3. Nothing at whakatane? Like the new title pic.

  4. There was a couple at WHK... http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.co.nz/2013/11/southbound-road-trip-1.html - Once upon a time I would have just walked out and got side on photos... given up doing that now... sadly
