Thanks for visiting and I hope you enjoyed reading some of the content of this Blog. I really enjoy bringing it to you!

A bit about me... In the real world, I'm a business analyst. In my spare time, I enjoying flying [I have a Private Pilot Licence - PPL] and a bit of amateur photography. Mostly this is of aircraft, but I like photographing a bit of scenery and other stuff when time and conditions allow.

I'm based in Wellington, New Zealand, and my flying usually revolves around Wellington International Airport, although I also enjoy getting out and about to see some of the wonderful scenery that we have here in New Zealand!

Are you interested using my original pictures from the Blog?

These pictures are all copyrighted, and are only found on this website [OK, so Google and others will have indexed them, but you know what I mean!]. In fact, if you see them elsewhere, please let me know!

On the other hand, if you're interested in using one or more of the photographs on a professional basis, please contact me and I'll see what we can agree on. I'm not inclined to just allow unfettered usage on other websites [else why would people come here?], but we might be able to organise something that suits both of us. Email me at blogrequests@flying.geek.nz for more information. At a basic level, I'll need to know the picture file name(s) you want to use [hover over the image in the blog], and where/ when/ how you wish to use them and if it is for commercial or non-profit purposes.

Your feedback is most welcome! Please leave a comment.

Hi Rodney,

When you posted about the thunder mustang a couple of years ago you said thanks to my uncle for one of the pics :-)

Hi David,

Was that the photo Gavin sent from WoW, or the one from the record breaking NZAA-NZCH flight??

Hi Rodney,
I read on the Australian Aviation website that Singapore Airlines are planning a regular service into Wellington using a A330 around March. Route is Singapore Canberra Wellington.

Wonder if the Wellington strip is long enough.

Rodney said...

Hi Kevin, I have heard the same. We'll have to wait and see what happens :-) I imagine that with a restricted fuel and freight load they could make it worthwhile, since it only has to get the Canberra [approx 4 hrs plus reserves?] before refuelling for the long-haul leg. Cheers, Rodney

If your out at the airport early on Saturday the 23rd, there will be an Air New Zealand 767 departing at 0600 back to Auckland. It has been operating as a charter international flight.

Rodney said...

That would be good to see.... although that time of day might be a bit hard :-)
