    Probably only the Air Nelson a/c's will be fitted with Ads-b; the few AT75's will probably be discarded as they age. Goodbye Mlats, perhaps.

    NEG,NEK,NEZ,NFA. I think that's all so far. First one was just over a month ago. They spend a week in Nelson for maintenance and return to flight with ADS-B.

    A bit haphazard matching things up. Sometimes it does, sometimes not!

    It would appear that we have another ADSB Q300 operational since 8 June ZK-NEZ
    Edit: May have been 30 May not Jun 8
    27 May if you have a look further back, when it came out of a week of maintenance. It's been nice to see 2 in the air at one time over the past couple of weeks. Waiting for the next one now!

    Oblivian, NFA is scheduled WN-TU at 1015. NZ8193 so RLK193. You should see it in a bit.

    The wife and I recently had the privilege of sitting adjacent the Interisland Ferry Terminal in Wellington Harbour and watching all the aircraft shoot the ILS into WLG Rwy16 in drizzly, overcast but fortunately enough acceptable conditions for photography. Even managed a RZNAF C130H Herc as well as all the usual culprits.

    You guys have an absolutely beautiful country with plenty of aviation to keep an aussie intrigued for hours and hours. Thanks to you local uploaders who were able to give me the id's of all the flights that day.

    just one example ZK-OXK- ANZ445 A320 AKL-WLG complete with landing and anti-collision lights and 'gear down';

    Sadly I didn't have my 70D with the 150-500mm lens since it's a tad too heavy to lug around but nonetheless got some good shots.

    Regards,
    Gregg

    I have to wonder if that's a successful FR24 MLAT mislabel?

    NFA. Sorry didn't realise the screenshot which was readable is now not readable. It's in Wellington last time I checked. Definitely ADS-B. Saw it on Dump1090.
