Extreme Aircraft Spotting

Its April 1982 today we are off on one of the furthest spotting trips possible, to Mount Cook airfield in New Zealand, so you had better bring some extra tea and sandwiches as we going via a Pan American 747 to Auckland  then we will drive to Wellington catch an Air New Zealand F27 to Blenheim  then drive to Mount Cook via Christchurch. So lets be off as its going to take about 5 days !

So here we are at last, and first up is Mount Cook Airlines Cessna 185 ski plane ZK-CAV used for trips up the mountain to land on a glacier.

Showing the various titles used is Mount Cook Line Islander ZK-MCC as with all aircraft in New Zealand not expected to fly overseas the ZK is not used in the registration marks.

Air Safaris GAF Nomad ZK-NOM.

Air Safaris Pilatus Porter ZK-PTP.

And so as the Mitsubishi Colt roars off back in the direction of Christchurch we say goodbye to Roger and Reggie till next time.
