First of all, what an incredible video. It not only reminds me of how awesome aviation can be, but also how beautiful the world is. Queenstown is one of my favorite places in the world, and I think this video does it justice from “above.”
Not only is the approach into Queenstown scenic, but it’s really complicated due to the number of mountains around, so you almost “circle” in there.
The video brought back good memories of the trip I took with my mom to New Zealand after my senior year of high school. We went to New Zealand for almost two weeks, and started on the South Island. Our first stop was Queenstown, followed by Christchurch, then Wellington, and then Auckland.
The funny thing was that when I was planning the trip no one actually recommended Queenstown to me. Why did I choose it? Well, at the time I was kind of obsessed with Priority Club, and that was one of the four cities in New Zealand where they had a property. So I literally went to Queenstown over a Crowne Plaza, though I’m happy I did, because it was gorgeous.
Good memories, and I can’t wait to return. Hopefully it’s still as incredible as I remember.
