    Sitting in my lounge putting a pook movie together for Kitty & just I heard very loud, deep aircraft jet engines. No Air AllBlacks Boeing 777 normally expected at 4.15 pm so I thought it might just be atmospherics (a crashing brief thunderstorm rolled southward thru the Hutt Valley around 1.30 pm). The skies are blue with white cloud patches again & I just peered out through parted net curtains in time to see a Military Grey Lockheed C-5 Galaxy slowly descending to land at Welly airport.

    No hope of getting it on my 4x zoom capable smartphone as it came out of the afternoon sun, sadly. It takes too long to boot up, select vidcam, & allow a half second for it to start recording. I managed to get a second or two @ 2x zoom on my trusty Samsung 3G, but what a shame. I’ve never seen one on landing approach to Welly airport before.

    They’re common as muck at Christchurch, but not here. Wonder why it’s landing at Welly?

        I’m not seeing an uptick from you. This pook movie is still in the edit stages. If you want it completed, & a link & a password, you know what’s required.
