Complete with pointy-eared flight attendants!
Yes, I’m a huge J. R. R. Tolkien fan, but this totally blows me away. It’s a great gimmick, though; since New Zealand’s breathtaking scenery provides the setting for both the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit. My friend Glenis Thomas of Wellington, NZ, has been keeping me up to date on the filming progress. Director Peter Jackson makes a video after each filming block, and Glenis sends me the links. I’m already thoroughly re-immersed in Middle Earth.

Now I really, REALLY wanna go to New Zealand!
