Plane Forced To Return Due To Smoke

The Mount Cook Airline Flight to New Plymouth was abruptly aborted last Friday.
One Aviation monitoring website reported a lot of smoke in the cabin, but Air New Zealand refuted this.

Engineers found there was no fault with the Aircraft,an Airline spokeswoman said. The Air conditioning system was the source of the haze, when it was inadvertently switched to the highest setting.

Air New Zealand said 42 passengers were on the Flight, NZ5231. The plane returned to Auckland 16 minutes after take off due to a very light haze being detected in the cabin, spokeswoman Emma Field said.

Air NZ Profit Taking Off Due To The Negative Publicity That Has Hit It This Year


Air New Zealand is set to announce a sharp increase in profit this week which the Airline will welcome as a shift in focus from the negative publicity that has hit it this year.

The Airline's underlying profit is tipped by Forsyth Barr to rise to $330 million for the year to June 30, up 29 per cent on the previous year.

Net profit is expected to rise from $182 million to $234.3 million, according to analyst Andrew Bowley who said growth could slow from here but he expected management to outline ways earnings will be lifted in the medium term.

Craigs Investment Partners, while acknowledging the inherent risk in investing in Airlines, particularly after the strong run Air NZ has had over the past two years, said the company remained in a strong position to increase earnings in the coming years.

The firm also expects earnings growth of around 30 per cent for the 2014 year followed by double digit growth in 20…

Classic Flyers chairman David Love said the organisation had been looking for a big new project when it heard about the Avenger and offered to lend a hand.
The Avenger Aircraft served with two squadrons, 30 and 31 with the Royal New Zealand Air Force. It's a torpedo bomber. It's got an enormous bomb bay which fits a torpedo in it, he said.

The Royal New Zealand Air Force Museum down at Wigram arranged for this particular Aircraft to be flown to Gisborne because 30 and 31 were based there.
The plane was left up to the Gisborne Aircraft Appreciation Society to restore but Classic Flyers offered to lend its expertise to help out the small club.


The Aircraft's fuselage was trucked to Tauranga and arrived late Tuesday night.
Mr Love said the clubs had both contributed $15,00…
