Wellington New Zealand to New Plymouth

This flight is set in New Zealand, North Island, scenery by ORBX. There is a nice review at Mutley's Hangar.

Wellington is the capital city of New Zealand and situated on the southern end of the island on the coast, with a scenic harbour surrounded by mountains. Wellington Airport (ICAO: NZWN) is surrounded by sea and has a single 2,081-metre (6,827 ft) runway. The short flight (55 minutes) to New Plymouth on the west coast, is operated by Air New Zealand. Make sure to avoid Mount Taranaki (Mount Egmont), an active but quiescent volcano at 2518 metres, just to the south of New Plymouth.
