Rush are hit and miss for me. Some of their seventies stuff is quality, but I can only take them in small doses. Haven't paid too much attention to their recent stuff. Might be worth checking out just to see what they're up to at the moment. I'm told their latest album actually isn't bad.

Didn't come up too bad. I even managed to catch the strobe light going.

First Colbert did an "interview" with them, pretty funny, and I believe they performed Tom Sawyer. But RUSH was woven through the whole show. Apparently one of Colbert's staff members is a huge fan, so music/lyrics/pics kept surfacing. Colbert asked them how they felt about not being inducted yet into the RNR Hall Of Fame, and if there next album would be called "That's Bullshit". Apparently RUSH have not appeared on American TV for 30+ years, so this was a first.

Huh, yeah, that worked out pretty well, all things considered.

So what's the deal with this plane? Regular visitor or was this for something special?

That's Bullshit? I'd buy it. How'd they respond?

They laughed.

One of the questions on the cards (from the staffer) asked if the band would sign the host. So all 3 of them proceeded to sign Colbert's hand/arm. Neal said he didn't want to see it ending up on ebay

Where is everyone tonight?

Just to balance out Ian's plane, and because I'd like to kick on to a new thread.

It was so much darker than the photo suggests.

I'd been meaning to photograph it for a while. It's a regular visitor but one of the rarest Airbus aircraft, the A340-200, a small version of the regular A340.

It was due in at 3pm, when I could have got a good photo, but they have a tendency to be quite late.

That's awesome.

Seems like the Three Musketeers have all turned in for the night and the Aussie crew's yet to show up in force.

Ahh, gotcha. What route does it fly?

I must confess, this was the plane that I believe has limited life in Auckland:



It flies Santiago - Auckland - Sydney. I don't see it lasting longer with Qantas starting Sydney - Santiago nonstop from November.
