Back in town...

Back in town at present is Chathams Pacific's Fairchild Metroliner ZK-CIC. Normally this ship plies between Tongatapu and Vava'u. Meanwhile, Great Barrier Airlines' BN Islander is in Tonga while Chathams Pacific's Islander A3-LYP undergoes maintenance. For photos of the Chathams Pacific aircraft in Tonga see http://3rdlevelnz.blogspot.co.nz/2011/01/a3-land-10-days-in-tonga.html

  1. Man i'd hate to travel on an islander all the way to Tonga. Wouldn't that be past the Islanders range??

  2. My idea of hell!!!!

  3. CIC flew back to NZ to ferry a new turbine and horizontal Stabilizer for CIB.
