Sun bathing in Westland

It is great to be in home territory enjoy the lovely West Coast weather while filling in at Greymouth with an occasional visit to an airport...

After a funeral at Hokitika I caught Eagle Air's Beech 1900D ZK-EAG arriving into Hokitika with the later afternoon flight on 4 April 2013. 
It's been around a long time but this is only the second time I have photographed Piper Cherokee 140 ZK-CIP at Greymouth on 4 April 2013.

Sequoia Falco ZK-TBD at Greymouth on 4 April 2013 after kindly being pushed out of the shade of the Greymouth Aero Club building.

Still sporting its previous US registration, RANS S-6S Coyote ZK-OFF at Greymouth on 7 April 2013 
Pipistrel Alpha Trainer ZK-JAT at Greymouth on 7 April 2013
Garden City Helicopters' Squirrel ZK-HGH at Greymouth on 7 April 2013, apparently looking for a new sponsor to replace Solid Energy



  1. I fly 6 times per month. 4 of those are with Eagle. by my reckoning, 70% of my Eagle flights have been on ZK-EAH. It is ridiculous!! I have never hit EAG or EAK, the black beautys. EAH is my aircraft :-)

  2. I flew on EAH out of Hokitika yesterday... I have yet to fly on J K and Q

  3. A, F, G, K, for Eagle. I have flown on every Q300, Boeing and ATR
