Video: Coolest Instrument Approach Ever!

Weaving one's way through the rocks and the clouds.

Every pilot knows (or should know) that New Zealand is one of the most, if not the most, beautiful places to fly on the planet.

But is it really fair that even their instrument approaches, which in our neck of the woods are typically grey and dismal affairs, should be spectacularly beautiful as well?

We don't have the chart for this approach, the RNP-AR arrival to Rwy 05 in Queenstown, which is no longer in use; nor do we know what model of airplane it is. All we do know is we watched the sped-up video three times and still haven't had enough. Enjoy.
