This site has everything you need to know about the deliveries

I'm pretty sure the 2 test frames (one of which came here earlier this year) are the 4th and 5th to be delivered after they're basically rebuilt after the testing is all complete.

Yep looks that way. Always the potential of one of them being scrapped however. Due the hours on the early test airframes before they start some end up in storage, or written off. That or kept in the test livery, and used for engine tests etc. Similar to the A380 001 bed.

Still on track for a departure in a few hrs. But the weather isn't expected to play ball for the arrival fanfare!

And on another recent note.. More info about the classes to the US market and potential orders..

Le Grande Departe. Just had a quick look by chance and NZ6789 is three minutes into the flight. Apparently 45 mins late leaving and ETA currently 5:25 pm NZST - will be fashionably late for the inevitable Air NZ corpoate hosting at Mangere. Hope they bought in plenty of smoked salmon and bubbly.

Edit: ETA seems to be changing quite markedly - in the space of 10 minutes went from 5:25 to 6:35 to 6:01 to 5:03 pm. Five minutes later and it's now showing 4:03 pm - I guess this is due to continuous recalc of the flight time as the plane gains altitude and accelerates.

I would be surprised if Air NZ did not take the opportunity for a flypast, if not a circuit of the city.

ETA was showing 3:00 pm an hour ago - now showing 4:45 pm. Maybe throttled back to get the timing right for the salmon and champers crowd.

The plane  is SW of Hawaii and FR24 is showing its planned track as a sharp LH turn shortly then a long flight east-south-east across South America, southern Africa, Indian Ocean and Australia. That's really flying the flag but they better get a move on.

She's just shown up on flightradar24, to the north of Auckland.

The herald has this:
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

Clever choice of flight number as well.
Will be approaching from the west in these winds so not that great a view from the spectator carpark.
