Air New Zealand Boeing B747-400 ZK-NBV touched down at Rockhampton late on Tuesday 22 October, arriving empty direct from Auckland as ANZ6031.
Local plane spotters Don W and 'IAD' were on hand to capture some lovely photos of the jumbo - as well as some 'close-ups' of ZK-NBV which is named "Christchurch".
ZK-NBV eventually departed direct to Singapore (Changi) Airport as ANZ1931, making a spectacular full-power departure off Rockhampton's Runway 33.
It is expected that ZK-NBV will be back at Rockhampton again later tonight on Wednesday 23 October.
Thanks to Don and 'IAD' for sending through these great photos!
