You are correct....a great video. I loved the NZ DC3 part as well.
I was there in the mid 80s, still a wonderful, unspoiled paradise. Even then, very few flights into and out of Rarotongo. Wonder what it's like now.
I know from experience what a treat it was to travel by air in the 50s, really something special. I would rather sit and look at wonderful videos like this now, than actually travel by air. Thanks for the memories.
Cheers,
