I found a tweet that had a team trying to cut into the standby line at Air New Zealand. In the next 2 to 3 hours, Air New Zealand has flights to Wellington, Christchurch, Sydney and Melbourne. I'm guessing Christchurch is very possible, just to show off the city after the earthquake.
I THINK CHIRSTCHURCH

FYI, just heard that Brisbane (Queensland) Australia is experiencing severe weather conditions currently (rain/floods).  Not sure if TAR22 will visit the Gold Coast or Austrailia at all, but this could affect the race.   :ascared   News at 11. 

Yes, correct. If you take a look at these photos, I'm sure you'll agree that IF Brisbane is planned then a change of plans may take place then.
See ya never

From Christchurch there are flights into most major Australian cities which is expected to be the next country. So I think its likely a double leg in Australia as opposed to NZL

Are they doing a leg in Christchurch or going from Christchurch to somewhere else?

Anyone live in Christchurch or nearby?

So far The Alabama Mullet and the Blonde girls are confirmed safe.

Very likely THEY WILL STAY in Christchurch as Auckland would have made much better connections to AUS at the time they ARE there.

Of course PHIL would want a leg in his hometown, particularly to update the earthquake status. Hoping to see John!! :flirt:

RFF's own on the ground team will be here later to fill us all in!  :hearts:

In the meantime, thanks to KIWI
 
teams are on the 730 PM flight to Christchurch and will be heading to what sounds like a bungy jump location tonight.

And sadly: The father/son team has had an accident. The father has ruptured his achilles tendon and is in a moon boot. :'(


I love RFF with all my heart. I just want to thank everyone that helps to contribute to spoiling the season for us. Whether it be finding pictures, tweets, locations, etc.

Sorry to hear about the Father/Son team. Curious to see who is still in the race.

Since we do have a team on the ground I do assume we will likely get a list of teams arriving in order. Is it possible to hide the results under spoiler tags? Many of us do not like team placement spoilers.


Waiau Ferry Bridge - Bridge Jumping
Christchurch Pier - Vertical Bungee Rocket
Bridge Jumping - Mount Hutt ski field

Are possible bungee sites in Christchurch

Another off the board observation Adelaide is the sister city of Chrstchurch and that might tie into why they are going to go there (if they end up going).

Lol I am with you on this one.

When the race started I was curious to see who the teams were and if any were semi-famous or from other reality tv shows. Then i was curious to see where they were heading next. Now we have pictures of teams after a leg or 2 have gone by and I am curious as to if my pre-season fave teams are still in it. *crossing my fingers*

I am going to have to pry myself off of the website once i find out :P

No, in general not. This is a spoiler board, read at your own risk. However, this was an airport sighting...

I guess you are right but there are many spoilers like identifying teams, location spoilers, task spoilers etc. Giving away the results in away takes away the interest of the race, but who am I too request such a thing.

Leafsfan, my attitude about placement "spoilers" are that usually they're partial and not total, and even then, we rarely if ever know why it happened, so there's always some mystery to be answered until the leg airs.

Peach, which team are you referring to as the "father-son" team? I don't see it in the team spoiler thread or the timeline thread.

a pure spec of one of the tasks could probably involved some of those "give back" to community thing, like help to build the city, renovate, donation, or else a sympathy letters or something  :)

teams are on the 730 PM flight to Christchurch and will be heading to tonight.

And sadly: The father/son team has had an accident. The father has ruptured his achilles tendon and is in a moon boot. :'(

From this tweet, if true, they must have been in a much earlier flight than 7:30 PM:

Most likely they were on the 5pm flight. At least the team mentioned in the tweet.

It is Sun Nov 18 1:30am Atlanta & 7:30pm Christchurch.

We'll get some clarification later. We know exactly when they arrived in Auckland, perhaps 730 refers to their arr time in CHC and not the dep time? Just wait... :tup:

Ahhh, but Phil could have easily been almost a day ahead of the teams? See Neobie's info in the transport thread, that's where flight info mostly goes.
