My Best Planespotting Photos By Far (NEW)

My family had to get up early this morning, and I got dropped off at the airport just as the sun was rising to take what I think, are the best plane-spotting photos at Auckland International, that I have ever taken!

Let's see if you agree Wink

Unlike other times, when I had been at the lookout carpark taking photos of the inbound aircraft airborne, this time I went over to tarmac itself, and found an "open gate", which lead my very close indeed to the runway indeed!

15 images to load- 1.82MB

1. A Qantas 737 landing on runway 23L

2. Yeah Baby! A huge Air New Zealand 747-441 taxing meters from my lens

3. The 20m tall tail looked giant close up!

4. An Air New Zealand Beech 1900D taxing down runway 23R

5. ZK-JNG turning onto the active

6. A beautiful Air New Zealand 767 taxing for takeoff

7. The aircraft looked stunning in the early morning light

8. Another Qantas 737 holds short while the 767 above lifts off to Japan

9. A Qantas 767 named "Bundaberg" taxies extremely close by, you can even see the pilot in the cockpit window

10. A zoomed out shot, with the aircraft only metres away

11. I could smell the engine gas as the 767 turned in front of me

12. Air Freight NZ's Convair 580 parked up for the morning

13. ZK-NSS "Lifeflight" Fairchild Metroliner

14. At the ANZ maintenance bay, a 777 and 747 sit stationary side by side

15. Another 747 under service, this time missing its rudder!

Thats the lot, any comments are welcome!

Super sharp photos, a nice variety of airlines and aircraft also.
Don't you have UPS or FedX landing there.

Scrap it? I bet that plane is 45 minutes from flight...you'd be surprised how easy it is to disassemble/reassemble these big birds.

Excellent shots! The lighting and location are perfect! I especially like the 767 take-off picture.

Thanks for the comments everyone Laughing

To answer your question Brownbox, I didn't really go through an "open gate", I actually stood in the carpark of the "Field Air NZ" hangers Wink

It is great being so close to the huge jets, the noise was incredable and it makes your heart beat very fast! Razz

Hopefully I will have some more pics from that same spot soon!

Well faucett, the airport security car drove right past me, and I thought I was in trouble, but nothing happened so I guess it's ok!
