Full power for take off- Queenstown, New Zealand

Thought for the day….”Listening, not imitation, may be the sincerest form of flattery.”

“You cannot start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one”

Full power for this AirNewZealand departure from Queenstown (ZQN), New Zealand.  In the background are the Remarkables Mountains.   Not one of the World’s easiest airports to fly in or out of, due to the surrounding mountains, although they have recently started night flights due to the huge demand for tourist flights to the area.   One of the problems caused by the success of the airport is the severe congestion on the road from the airport to the town centre.   There is already talk about making a 4 lane highway from near the airport into the city centre, although the real problem is that there is not enough public transport.   The town planners’ answer is to build bigger and more roads, whereas the solution should be a public transport system.

and another photo from New Zealand….Nugget Point in the Catlins.   Named after the ‘nuggets’ off the actual point, there has been a lighthouse here since 1870.   The area is home to many fur seals, yellow-eyed penguins and also seabirds such as spoonbills and gannets.   The road to the Point is now being sealed, which will make access easy.

RESPECT, CONSIDERATION & FAIRNESS


Photo of the Day Saturday 16th March 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” Make peace with your past so it will not mess up the present”.

“Light travels fast than sound.  This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak”

Up into the air for the photo today and the queen of the skies, the 747 (actually a 747 400 in the photo).     It first flew in 1969 and more than 1450 ‘jumbos’ have been built.   It cruises at 920 km/h and has a range of 13 450km.   The list price of a new 747 800 (the latest model) is USD 351 million.   Interesting, the early versions carried URANIUM as ballast to stop a problem with wing flutter, not good in the even of a crash, as did an El Al 747 at Amsterdam in 1992, carrying 282 kg of uranium in the tailplane.  In 1991, one 747 took off with 1087 passenger aboard as part of Operation Solomon.
