It's certainly a busy place, and getting busier!
Where were the first and third shots taken from? Is it public access?

You can get right up to the fence boundary between the hotel and terminal and poke your camera through the fence. That is what I did the other day when I was passing through

That'd be great -- looking at GE, it looks like the third shot was taken from somewhere in the foreground here, which I wouldn't have thought you could get to....
I see that the building I've just finished modelling is almost demolished:)
Time to get back to NZCH, I think, maybe next week! We should catch up, Marty.

Wow amazing photos

What in the heck is Alaskan C-130 doing in NZCH far far far far away from its home base Alaska?

It's cold, too?
I can tell you about Abercrombie and Kent, though.
When you've cashed in your stock at the end of a long and illustrious career manufacturing spradgets, and have done the ocean cruise, what to do with the change?
Why, step aboard the A&K 757 and join
your small group of 50 like-minded guests travels on an exclusive itinerary packed with immersive insider-access opportunities, fine dining and invitation-only cultural events curated by our local experts around the world. Jet from one destination to the next aboard a chartered Boeing 757 with fully lie-flat, first-class seats and featuring a staff of expert tour managers, a dedicated flight crew, an Executive Chef and an onboard physician. Finish each day in accommodations chosen for their comfort, hospitality and true local character on a journey that combines luxury, authenticity and expertise as only A&K can.

(My highlight, illustrates the demographic.)
Yours for USD 14 596 which sadly nowadays is NZD 22 270 You could do this slightly more cheaply in the sim, too:

I'm pretty sure it's here to support the Italian Antarctic program. Until now they used a SAFAIR L-100.
