Public information on 787-9 arrival into Auckland

The first 787-9 aircraft in the world to be delivered to an airline will touch down at Auckland International Airport this afternoon between 4.00 and 4.30pm.

Depending on weather conditions at the time it is intended the aircraft will approach the Musick Point/Browns Island area from the North/East and head west towards North Head. It will then turn to the north heading up the Rangitoto Channel towards Browns Bay then circle back towards Whenuapai before flying down the harbour towards Browns Island from where it will position to land dependent on the runway in use on the day.

A live feed of the aircraft’s arrival into Auckland will be available on The Flying Social Network and livestream.com. The exact timing of this live feed will also depend on weather conditions and on the final estimated time of arrival of the aircraft.
