    I thought I'd try to start a thread of peoples experiences travelling by plane.

    Both of these are in NZ:

    - the first is flight NZ****, the view from my seat in a Dash-8 looking out across the Napier air-port run-way preparing to take me home

    - the second is flight NZ***, the interior of a 737-300 carrying me and my colleagues to Auckland for Microsoft TechEd 2010

    Both taken with my EP1 and 17mm / 2.8 which is a great little travel lens (although I occasionally miss the zoom in the kit lens).

    Not my best photos, but it is novel to be able to post them in-flight, moments after they're shot!
