While walking the dog I heard the distinctive sound of an old aircraft engine. Looked up to see a de Havilland Dragon (like the one below) heading west. As I watched, in the background, an Air New Zealand Boeing 777 broke through cloud — gleaming white in a beam of sunlight — on approach into Auckland. Unfortunately the iPhone camera didn’t get close to capturing it in any worthwhile detail. I wished I was carrying a real camera!
Amazing to think only sixty five years development separates these two.
