Air New Zealand 75th Anniversary Exhibition at Auckland Museum

Auckland Anniversary Day today seemed like a good time to visit the Air New Zealand 75th Anniversary Exhibition at the Auckland Museum.  I had seen it previously in Wellington but it was good to see it again, and there were a few new exhibits such as the DC 8 cabin.

As would be expected, there are many historic photos and I now post photos of some of them here:

The caption for this photo says that it shows Short S 30 Empire flying boat  ZK-AMA, "Aotearoa" returning to Auckland after the first commercial flight to Sydney of TEAL in 1940

Short S 45 Solent 4 flying boat ZK-AMM at Evans Bay, Wellington.

A much later shot of two colourful Boeing 737-200s just across the bay at Wellington.

And their latest Boeing type, B 787-9 ZK-NZE2 showing the flex of its carbon fibre wings.

While outside was the travelling nose - of B 737-300 ZK-NGK

Well worth a visit.

  1. Thanks for telling about this 75th Anniversary Exhibition. My cousin attended it and told me how interesting it was. If such events are organized at any local event venue Houston TX, I will never miss them.
