***WARNING 56k'ers, 17 images totalling 1.90MB to follow***

1. ZK-KFB, Air National's Gulfstream G-IV

2. The Lifeflight NZ Air Ambulance

3. Thai airways Airbus A340 aka "the flying pencil"

4. Another A340, owned by LAN Chile, touches down on runway 23L

5. Great Barrier Airline's BN-2A Tri-Islander

6. Mountain Air's (who are GBA's only rival) "Great Barrier Xpress" BN-2 Islander

7. An Emirates 777

Nice and clear, close ups are excellent and some of the new paints are interesting.
I do like that Islander, unusual configuration.

Fantastic photos,the closest folk get to taking pictures at Prestwick Airport is about 20 yards outside the perimeter fence.It appears you had your wire cutters with you that day.... well done. 😀

that private jet may be Graeme Harts BD-700, but the reg on it is registered to WellsFargo bank in the USA..... nice photoshop on it though, i thought it was a little strange seeing 2 planes like that at the same time at NZAA
