Shalom and greetings all my pals,

Presenting a nice Royal New Zealand Air Force Boeing 757-200M flight from NZTG Tauranga Airport located adjacent to Tauranga Harbour in the suburb of Mount Maunganui about 2 miles northeast of city of Tauranga to NZCH Christchurch International Airport located 7.5 milles to the northwest of the city centre of Christchurch

Plane waiting to be boarded with personnel and cargo


Being pushed back


Starting engines with nice background view of Bunnings Warehouse store


Checking left engine and making sure there is no late personnel running to the plane


Double checking for any late personnel


Checking to be sure nobody is refueling as jet blast can endanger fuel loading


Revving up engines


Starting to taxi to short of runway 25


Leaving the terminal


Holding short of runway 25 with nice background view of Tauranga Harbour


Entering into taxiway 25 for more taxi and later backtrack


I was so busy taking screenshots and admiring view of Tauranga airport and city that I accidentally ran out of runway where you can see tire skid marks of embarrassing backtracking. This is first time in 10 years of FSX flight simming that I see tires leaving skid marks on grass!!!!!


Airborne on climb to FL350 leaving view of Port of Tauranga which is New Zealand's largest port in terms of gross export tonnage and efficiency


Making left turn to head southward



Passing through clouds can be fun as long as you have radar to look out for other planes


Passing background of the airport of departure where you can see Waipu Bay located under side cargo door


Sorry that I forgot name of this lake


Passing NZRO Rotorua Regional Airport and its suburb of Rotokawa located approximately 4 miles north east of Rotorua


Sorry that I do not know what the name of the two weird water spots on right side of right wing are


Because of regulations of the forums not allowing more than 20 screenshots per post, please be kind enough to go to this hyperlink below to view rest of the screenshots.

Here is the link:

Thank you for viewing!!  Stay tuned for next exciting flight
