Would have been almost flying on a concorde for the return flights LOL

I would have though the suitable ALT's would be either NZWN or NZDN ... Only asking as V-Route has a nifty fuel calculation on it whic...

Re: SNO - Sunday 5th July 2009 - Queenstown Winterfestival

It fascinates me as to how some try and land A380's and MD11's into QN ...
The captians on both over the past 2 weeks must have been related to Evil Kenevil LOL

That right base turn for finals for the DME/VOR Alpha 05 approach is certianly one tricky little turn

Brett was indeed a great "farmer" as such for Flight Sim in NZ as it was at...
