“Merchant Courier”. Bought by Safe Air in 1966, this aircraft was ferried from Lydd, England to Blenheim, New Zealand in 18 days. Retired in 1987 with over 27,000 flight hours and 33,000 landings, this venerable workhorse has carried thousands of tons of freight and mail, and many horses, sheep, pigs, cattle as well as cars and human passengers. It now rests peacefully and cared for in the idyllic Marlborough countryside. (Source: www.aviationfilm.com) [Canon EOS 40D + Sigma 10-20mm f/4-5.6 EX DC HSM]
