Air New Zealand Links' C-FHPZ
Air New Zealand Link has their newest Dash8-311, C-FHPZ (msn 629), on their way from Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It stopped here @ HNL after arriving from CCR (Buchanan Field, CA). C-FHPZ's next stop tomorrow, will be PPG (Pago Pago, American Samoa).
If you look under the starboard wing, you'll notice the auxiliary fuel line that goes from a cabin window (where a ferry tank is placed in the cabin), to the main fuel tanks in the wings. This feature is common to all Dash8 variants that are on over-ocean ferry flights.
Sorry ... this was the best shot I could get, as there were a couple of corporate jets screening me out.
