For the latest New Zealand aviation news stories, visit the aviation page on the Herald website here: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/topic/index.cfm?c_id=556

Or, if you want to know what the real pilots have to say, then visit the 'Dunnunda & Godzone' section of http://www.pprune.org/forums/

Just stumbled across another site similar to the MRC Blog- 'zkarj.co.nz'

It has heaps of recent aviation photos from all over the country, plus an entire image catalog of NZ Warbird aircraft which is very handy (especially if you're planning a FS repaint). See the NZ Warbirds Visual Guide.

Another cool page features detailed spotting locations at NZAA and NZWN set onto their google map satellite images, which can be seen here: http://www.zkarj.co.nz/blog/photographers-maps

Also, in the sidebar, I found a link to 'Rodney’s Aviation Ramblings', which is another blog site set out in a similar format, with plenty more planespotting pics from the Welly region: http://flyinggeek.blogspot.com/

I get most issues but am starting to find more and more of interest in the glossy pages of pacific wings. I occasionally pick up one of the plethora of sports aviaiton mags too
