Images: Departing LOTR Stars Meet Their Planes

The Lord of the Ring's stars come face to face with themselves on the side of Air NZ planes as they bid New Zealand goodbye at Wellington Airport before boarding the Air New Zealand 767 emblazoned with giant images of the characters Aragorn and Arwen.

The actors, including Elijah Woods and Liv Tyler, have been in Wellington for the past few days to take part in the world premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

It is estimated that about 800 fans and well-wishers gathered in the airport terminal in an attempt to catch a final glimpse of the stars and try for last minute autographs.
