Taken at Auckland International Airport, November, 1992. The BD5 on static display - none of my photos of this aircraft in the air came out. The aircraft suffered a nosewheel failure on landing - which was rather spectacular (some damage to the aircraft - no injuries). This was slightly ironic, as this BD5 (from Seattle) was a replacement for the originally scheduled aircraft (from Miami) which was unable to attend after being damaged.
