Planespotting in Milford Sound - Part 1

With Queenstown being an international airport it is nigh on impossible to get decent photos of the light aircraft that fly into Milford... so courageously braving the sandflies I drove into Milford Sound on the 10th of January 2014 and here is what I got ...

Part One features the merged operations of Real Journeys, Air Fiordland and Milford Sound Scenic Flights that operates as Milford Sound Flights.

Three Britten Norman Islanders going back to Mount Cook Airlines' days... ZK-DBV (above) ZK-MCD (centre) and ZK-MCE (bottom).

A tourist plane from way back... Cessna 206 ZK-DXZ... In the past Air Safaris, Aspiring Air and Wanaka Flightseeing have operated this aircraft.
