Today we went to the airport

Muzz’s aunty has been staying here in New Zealand helping out after Muzz’s mum had a knee replacement. Aunty is a good cook so we have all been enjoying not only her great company but also her great cooking.

This afternoon we all went to the airport to see her go home to Aussie. Daniel is taking much more interest in things as he gets older. He was really interested in all the activity at the airport especially the planes. He spent time with his daddy pointing to them. look-daddy.jpg and waving and lookinglook-daddy-2.jpgdaniel-taking-it-all-in.jpg

After waving bye bye to the boys Great Aunty (pun intended not only is she my boys great aunty, she is also a great aunty with a loving caring personality) daddy-and-dj.jpg bye-bye-great-aunty.jpg

We turned around and behind us in the airport lounge were a dozen or so army guys. Great excitement followed as we realised the Hercules the Royal New Zealand Air Force plane that we saw time some ago at a airshow was coming in to land. To take the army guys somewhere. Daniel was a bit in awe of the size – werent we all??? He was ok through when Daddy and I talked to him. He looked and looked again. rnzaf.jpg hercules.jpgthe-big-one.jpgthe-army-men-get-on.jpg the-big-one-takes-off.jpg

Ive said it once and I’ll say it again “that plane is massive!!!!” A real bonus to our visit!!!

The airport was busy today as we about to leave another plane came in. another-plane.jpg

  4. Yes it was a word that is indescribable to explain when the Hercules arrived, we felt like it was far larger than us dwarfed by the size of this plane I got a buzz with the sound of the Hercules engine with the engine still running while they pick up military personnel and this was at a normal airport in Hawkes Bay New Zealand by the way the HB Air port is still waiting for a runway extension to be done for larger planes bigger than the Hercules to come in.

    for Daniel he was taking it all in and also I must admit he was a wee bit scared at the start but got over it when he knew he had security with him.
