3 x Jumbos as Evan creeps closer

I captured three Jumbos at Auckland this morning... a sight that is becoming rarer and rarer! Interestingly I had flown on two of them... SUH -LHR-LAX-AKL and HL-7402 FCO-ICN...

Off to Sydney as NZ103 was Air New Zealand Boeing 747-400 ZK-SUH. Photo taken at Auckland on 22 December 2012 

Qantas Boeing 747-400 VH-OEJ on QF8 from Dallas/Fort Worth to Brisbane via Auckland. Photo taken at Auckland on 22 December 2012
Heading back to Seoul-Incheon was Korean Air HL-7402 on KE130. Photo taken at Auckland on 22 December 2012.


  1. Steve, you wrote the Korean Air 747 was coming from FCO-ICN is that a through flight from Rome or a typo?

  2. No... I flew on the Korean 747 from Rome to Seoul... Korean Air put me in the transit hotel - the Hilton!!! then a 777-200 down to AKL. Korean Air was great and so much cheaper than the other airlines

  3. I see thanks for the reply
