  1. Hey mate, I've been considering booking a flight down to Christchurch to do some filming down there and was wondering if you had advice for where is best to film? I use to film in Christchurch (about 2009) from the roof of the airport but after flying down early this year it became apparent it was no longer available to film from. I'm using quite a mid range lens(18-55mm) so the closer to the runway or taxiway the better, cheers dude!

    Nice catch at CHCH! What's the street name/area at the spot? You didnt move closer to the fence.. A tripod is good idea. ChCh does not have many foreign aircraft fly there.
