This DC-3 also served with East West Airlines as VH-EWB. It was registered VH-PWM in Nov 1967. It entered the New Zealand register as ZK-AMR in August 1986. It was converted by East West to have a single passenger door but Rebel Air returned it to its military configuration with a double cargo door.
Taken from atop the large sewer main that crosses the Cooks River near the end of Runway 07. No longer accessible. Formerly VH-EWB, this aircraft had a DC-3-style passenger door fitted from 1958 to 1973 when the double doors were reinstalled.
