The 1990 Enroute Chart shows the Christchurch, Wellington,
Auckland tracks passing over Lord Howe Island. The Christchurch traffic used the
Hokitika beacon on the west coast of the South Island of NZ.
By 1996, only Auckland region traffic used Lord Howe as a
waypoint. The rest took more directs GPS routes over the Tasman Sea.
Christchurch traffic still used the Hokitika beacon.
