Despite the fact I work in IT, I am really lost when it comes to any sort of code (excel macro's are about has complex as I get). I would have loved to have given you all notes on my photos like the other guys I read but I've struggled in the past to make things look neat and with so many photos I just decided to just post em all (thankfully in chronological order) and let them speak for themselves. HOWEVER, I call on all plane buffs who read this, in the photo of the aircraft parked on the barrier, what is that plane parked between our Arrow and the Jet Ranger with the cover on?

I'm pretty sure it is a Socata TB.20 Trinidad. Sort of a French Arrow.
Could be JFC or CCA. Comfortable cabin 6-cyl 235hp engine, CSU prop and retract. A nice machine.

I asked Bruce Cooke who I work with and he said it was likely a Socata Trinidad. It certainly was an interesting plane to look at. Its got this funny rear podlike fuselage extension protruding out behind the fin that looks like the airbrake off a Blackburn Buccaneer.

I cheat and just use the 'add image' button in the blogger editor... it asks if you want it left/right/centre aligned etc.. and how you want the text to flow...

preview is your friend :)

Once you've done it once, it is really easy to just copy+paste the html code ;)

Euan,

I would have guessed a Trinidad or similar also. There's a TB-10 [Tobago] at Wellington that has a very similar shape.

Cheers!
