Passengers disembark from TEAL's Lockheed Electra turboprop "Aotearoa" at Whenuapai, Auckland after the flight across the Tasman sea from Australia. Three Electra L-188C aircraft were bought in 1959 to replace older Douglas DC-6 aircraft on the trans-Tasman routes to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. In March 1965 one Electra (ZK-TEC) was destroyed in a training accident at Whenuapai, fortunately without loss of life. TEAL became Air New Zealand on the 1st April 1965.
