About This Item

Auckland: Random House, 2000. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Soft cover. Near Fine. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Very lightly read with only light shelf wear. First built in the 1930s, the Douglas DC-3/Dakota was an adpatable aircraft that filled a variety of roles: military transport (as a gunship, glider tug and air ambulance), commercial travel, freighter transport and even topdressing. This book tells the story of the DC-3 in New Zealand. First introduced during World War II, the aircraft became a vital part of the RNZAF fleet. It carried everything from spare parts and mail to food and ex-POWs and was involved in fighting in the Solomon Islands and support of New Zealand fighter bomber squadrons and flying boat squadrons. The DC-3 was the mainstay of New Zealand's commercial air services, for both passengers and freight, from the late 1940s until the mid-1960s, and embodies many nostalgic memories for generations of New Zealanders. It has carried VIPs, including Queen Elizabeth II. It also has had a key role in rural areas as a topdressing aircraft. Today, it makes regular appearances in warbirds displays and in tourism enterprises.
