Orbx Simulations NZWR Whangarei Airport

The Capital of Northland, New Zealand


Lovely detail all around the airport - here we see the refuel depot.

While I don’t have unlimited funds to travel the world, I did splash out a few years ago to celebrate a significant birthday and had a wonderful four weeks in New Zealand. I think it’s a place that should be on everyone’s bucket list as the scenery is spectacular, the people are really friendly and it has an ‘old world’ charm about it. I only mention it because this latest release from Orbx takes us to the ‘Land of the Long White Cloud’ - New Zealand, or Aotearoa as it’s known in the Maori language. This time it brings us Whangarei Airport in Northland - the first one from Orbx in the North Island.
