Singapore Airlines Cargo Boeing 747-412F 9V-SFK (c/n 28030) was completing its freight unload on the "Deep Freeze" apron at Christchurch International at lunch time today.
This 747 has been around since February of 2002.
Beyond the nose of the 747 and lurking in the hangar is the Dassault Falcon 20 D-CMET prepping for its next Deepwave research flight; with the tail of the Gulfstream on the right.
Its work comrade is the NASA Gulfstream V N677F.

A bit of a surprise today was the arrival of the Piper PA22/20 ZK-BSH (c/n 22-7321).
