Air Chathams' Photo Update

With the Southern Motorway into Auckland being a massive and ongoing traffic jam I tend to avoid going to Auckland so when I drove up on Sunday and flew out on Monday I was delighted to catch up on some of the Air Chathams fleet

  1. be nice to see pof get some colour in the future

  2. Maybe POF could get something similar such as a Black Robin or a whole Chathams Island Shag snaking up the whole Tail would look impressive.

  3. The commander in the background could get a great white shark paint job considering the Chats has one of the most healthiest populations of white sharks in the world...
