This is an auction for DC-3: SOUTHERN SKIES PIONEER by Brian Lockstone & Paul Harrison.

“The Douglas DC-3/Dakota has had a remarkable history around the world for the past six decades. First built in the 1930s, it was an adaptable aircraft that filled a variety of roles: military transport, as a gunship, glider tug and air ambulance; commercial travel; freighter transport; and even topdressing. There are many examples of this timeless aircraft still in regular service around the world. DC-3: Southern Skies Pioneer tells the story of the DC-3 down under. This remarkable aircraft was first introduced to New Zealand during World War II and 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 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 had a key role in rural areas as a topdressing aircraft. Today it makes regular appearances in warbirds' displays and in tourism enterprises."
