Sydney, Au (YSSY) to Queenstown, NZ (NZQN)
« on: February 04, 2011, 06:21:38 AM »
This is an actual flight by Qantas Air using the B737-800. The approach into Queenstown is very diffilcult as there is no straight-in approach for either runway, 05/23. They are circle approaches. So charts are necessary to fly the approach. The following link is a video showing the various approaches (not done by me). The 800 is the largest aircraft allowed to land at NZQN.

The pictured plan is for RWY 23. Sorry about the big arrows, not sure how to remove them or resize them. There are other approaches, so have fun and be careful. Visual is required at a specific altitude I believe. Also, night landings are prohibited.
