Changing Planes

Stolen from the Air Chathams Facebook page is this pic of Saab 340 ZK-KRA - Here is what Air Chat's wrote... "A sneak peak behind the doors at the Auckland hangar of our new Saab 340 airliner getting a makeover!"
Noted in Ardmore is Sunair's Piper Navajo ZK-JGA minus the Sunair titles
Barrier Air's Piper Chieftain ZK-VIP has returned to Dunedin and registered back to Enfield Holdings Ltd which operates as Mainland Air

  1. With the Convair and the Saab, as well as the DC-3, is Air Chathams planning to create the best-looking turbo-prop fleet ever? Because they are going the right way about it :)

  2. So much for there last flight on 30th July? After bit of research, KRL8 NSN-TRG on 26th July maybe last schedule service. Bye Bye Kiwi Regional Airlines! I think CVA have an open day at WAG on 31st July?

  4. Yes, saw the Metro on the KRA run. great to see a Metro in HLZ again. A strong case for Chats to take over the HLZ-NSN run. Origin is looking as well.
