Air to Air with the ANZ All Blacks

Recommended Posts

Off topic, but guys I was just Air to Air with the ANZ All Blacks with around 2,000ft separation entering the LAX Special Flight Rules Area in the PA-28. She's so incredible! Couldn't believe it!

That is awesome to hear....It is an amazing aircraft. The only Black Livery out there and she really stands out in the clouds. I think it is the best Livery ever done.

It is a real head turner indeed. Might have cost 800,000USD to paint, but the best advertising bang for their buck ANZ have ever spent.

Agree. The best livery ever done. Looks fantastic.

 

Though I don't like the new livery of ANZ with the black tails and white fuselage. Looks boring, and the current real is much nicer, especially with the phased out wave on the forward fuselage.

I agree with that too. I think ANZ has been a little too caught up on the All Blacks with that change. The Pacific Wave Sea and Sky theme was inspired by the Maoru Koru. The colours based on the Pounamu or Greenstone

It seems a few too many All Blacks fans at ANZ for them to rebrand overtop of these New Zealand traditions. New Zealand isn't all about Rugby and I would have thought the three All Black planes would have been good enough celebration of the Rugby World Cup....

 

Oh well. I am not too bothered as it is still the same airline regardless of the paint they use and they will keep a white or black Koru

Mate way too busy flying. I wouldn't recommend losing concentration whilst flying in the LA Class Bravo airspace! Luckily it's VFR and was a brilliantly clear day so that gave for some wonderful views.

 

- Video of the flight. Unfortunately the GoPro didn't pick the ANZ up!

thought you wouldnt!!!

with Air Cadets, the ones not so serious about learning to fly just take pictures and do aerobatics, whereas a fly it for a long time, but i am laways told "if theres something you want to take a picture of, feel free just to tell me and i can take control for you while you do your thing"

 

im really enjoying your flight training Video's Luke! Do you think you'll get chance for a spotting video sometime soon?

Well, as a pilot you should know when it's appropriate to get your phone or camera out to take some photos. I normally would when I have it trimmed out and I am on course. Also I'm under ATC 85% of the time so that needs monitoring.

 

I'm not sure when the next spotting video will be, probably not for a few weeks as I'm too busy with Ground School & Flying.
