In praise of small planes

Not more rants about drones & UAVS – yesterday I went on a quick trip to the South Island, for a shoot in Pelorus Sound… Usually I fly Jetstar (I’m not much of a fan of Air NZ and those godawful videos they make) but as this was a very short flight I flew Sounds Air & when I went to board I discovered it was a tiny plane – maximum seating would be about a dozen people, including the pilot & co pilot!

I could literally look over the shoulder of the pilot

We had great weather so it was fun & relaxing, not so sure that would apply in bad weather!

Flying back to Wellington just after sunset I was ready & shot lots of slightly blurry photos… c’est la vie!
