The Air New Zealand Hobbit inspired Boeing 777-300 has been a huge draw on its first journey to London via Los Angeles this weekend.
The Hobbit plane, operating as NZ2, was a spectacular site as it made its landing at Los Angeles International Airport this weekend en route to make its first appearance at London’s Heathrow Airport.
Cast members from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be joining the flight in London as the Hobbit aircraft travels back to Auckland via Los Angeles, delivering them to New Zealand in time for their red carpet appearance at the movie’s global premier in Wellington on Wednesday 28th November.
But how did they make this Middle Earth aircraft?
The largest ‘plane wrap’ ever applied to a jet aircraft.
