'Aotearoa' was the name of TEAL's first ever aircraft, Short S.30 Empire ZK-AMA, and has appeared on at least another four of their subsequent fleet.
The name was writ large on the Empire:
and rather smaller on the Solent 4 ZK-AML, which became 'Aotearoa II'
When the landplanes arrived, DC-6 ZK-BGA became 'Aotearoa III' in 1954
By the time 'Aotearoa' appeared on L-188C Electra ZK-TEA in 1959, the numbering sequence seems to have been dropped and just the name appeared.
Boeing 767 ZK-NBA apparently carried the 'Aotearoa' name at some time during the 1985 - 1997 era, before the aircraft was leased overseas
To round out the list, does anyone have any knowledge of any other aircraft that carried the 'Aotearoa' name?
