Remember these days?

Over the last months I have picked up some old slides...

Air New Zealand Fokker F27-100 Friendship ZK-BXH at Auckland 

Avcorp Commuter's Cessna 402 ZK-DSG and Cessna 404 Titan ZK-TAT on the ramp at Nelson 

Mount Cook Airlines' BN Islander ZK-MCD at Auckland. Mount Cook's Islanders were used for services to Kerikeri, Great Barrier Island and Rotorua.

What might have been, Skybus Vickers Viscount ZK-SKY at Auckland. I have a large envelope of newspaper clippings to scan before I write the history of Skybus.



  1. My Dad flew on a F27 Friendship from WLG-HLZ in 1966 when he moved here from Luton, Bedfordshire when he was only 6

  2. I flew in BXH several times, both with NAC and Air NZ.

  3. Flew on all but one of the NAC/ANZ F27-100 fleet - the exception was BXH!
    My first ever flight was on BXE in 1967 WLG-AKL - they were main trunk in those days. Mixed success with the -500s - missed out on NFC, NFD, NFH and NFJ. My most frequent was 8 flights in the sole -100/200 hybrid in the fleet - BXI.
