Wow! This is a bit different to the usual run of Boeing and Airbus [and a range of smaller type] airliners to visit Wellington.
Earlier today a Russian built Tupolev TU154 of the Polish Airforce landed at Wellington. I only went to the airfield in the morning to go for a short flight to Martinborough airstrip [a privately owned strip in the Wairarapa - the owner is very friendly, just give him a call before hand if you want to visit!], but I'm glad I stayed until a bit after 3pm.
It's noisy, reasonably ugly and spews forth vast quantities of contaminants into the air - those attributes in and of themselves qualify this as a Russian designed and built plane :-) As usual, for details of this aircraft, check out Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tupolev_Tu-154.
Anyway, here are some pictures of this event. The first one is just there to show the smoke trail being left behind on final approach. The rest of them give a better view of the aircraft itself. Note the Polish titles on the left side fuselage, and the English on the right. Enjoy!
