Long time browser, new member of the Fellowship and first post. The Air New Zealand flying billboard for the Hobbit movie.

Why fly with eagles if you fly in comfort?

Awesome! [In reply to] Can't Post

That looks really cool! it kinda reminds me of when Air New Zealand had their All Blacks paint jobs. I really like their paint jobs but it must cost a lot because the paint is really heavy and that means it takes more fuel.

Clickable link [In reply to] Can't Post

The make a link "clickable", put some text in your message, select the text, then click the little "link" button at the end of the bar above the editing window (looks like two chain links, or a sideways figure-8). In the little window that pops up, paste the link.

I did that with your link here.

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville

Howdy and Welcome! :D [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm so glad you've found your way here! It's a GREAT place to hang out and get hobbity ;)

What a great link! I just spent about 15 minutes there watching the videos over and over again.

Cheers...

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

Welcome aboard :) [In reply to] Can't Post

And thanks for the link. My local news station showed the finished product, but it was interesting to see the process. I especially loved the ME themed safety video. Laugh

re: weight of paint [In reply to] Can't Post

On my local news, they showed a bit about this. They said that the paint weighed about as much as an average passenger. But I guess they can more than make up for the extra cost in fuel with all the extra business they get with all of LOTR and TH fans visiting ME. Ahhh, maybe one day I'll make it there, too.Evil
