Most Excellent News for Wellington spotting

Plane spotters are about to get their own cafe in a recycled Wellington Aero Club building that will soon be moved to the edge of the runway at the Lyall Bay end of Wellington Airport. The building, which was used by the aero club from 1933, will be shifted next week to a corner of the airport beside the air force terminal. There it would have views of the touchdown zone at the southern end of the runway and of the Lyall Bay surf break, airport chief executive Steven Sanderson said. The aero club moved out of the old building last year and now uses a hangar beside the air ambulance base.
