Craig Printing Company 2003, softcover, 227 pp. Former library usual markings, stamps, stickers, but otherwise reasonable condition.

ISBN 0473093650

"The pioneering small airlines of the 1950s and 1960s, like Fred Ladd's Tourist Air Travel in Auckland and Popeye Lucas's Southern Scenic in Queenstown, were colourful examples of post-war optimism and the 'can do' attitude which changed New Zealand forever.

Illustrated by many rare photographs, this book reveals new and fascinating insights into post-war New Zealand. It describes how the pioneer airlines, and those who ran them, endeared themselves to many - including royalty, farmers, politicians, clergy, tourists and most importantly by thousands of ordinary New Zealanders.

A major aviation history published in the 100th anniversary year of powered flight in New Zealand. This book reveals new insights into postwar aviation in New Zealand, describing how the pioneer airlines operated, and how they and those who ran them, endeared themselves to thousands of ordinary New Zealanders."
