  6. Wow - the center photo showing the airplane in its striking livery with the entire factory and surrounding mountains in the background is a masterpiece! I think you've outdone yourself with this one...

    Though very much an industrial manufacturing facility we are situated in a truly beautiful area creating (what I think are) beautiful and at the same time utilitarian things. That photo sums it up perfectly.

  7. In an era where it seems all airliners are mostly white, this is a refreshing change of pace! I just hope the paint hold up. Back when USAirways flew their navy color scheme I remember those dark colors got really ratty looking really fast. This black plane is gorgeous though. Let's hope Air New Zealand doesn't mind the additional costs of keeping it black...
