Beautiful New Zealand (3)

Volcanic Air's Aerospatiale Squirrel ZK-IAB taken on 28 December 2015

Over the Top Helicopters' Aerospatiale Squirrel ZK-IKJ on approach for its Moon landing on 28 December 2015

It was followed by Volcanic Air's Bell Jetranger ZK-IVA... at quite a distance so lots of heat haze

And of course the photos were taken on White Island
Looking towards the steaming crater
The remains of the wharf and factory
Heading the crate
while our boat lies at anchor
White Island heliport

Looking to Mt Gisborne, the highest point on White Island

The crater edge was shrouded in steam... and below a glimpse into the crater

The remains of the factory that produced sulphur 1923-33

The largest gannet colony 

One of the smaller colonies...
Te Paepae o Aotea (Volkner Rocks) The smallest of the Volkner rocks was formerly used as a bombing target by the Royal New Zealand Air Force. 
Farewell White Island
Coming home a HUGE pod of dolphins... they were everyone
