The Mangaweka Skyliner DC-3 in Repose

Mangaweka is an intimate ville, on the North Island of New Zealand,  which lies between Wellington and Palmerston North for those familiar.

For ages there has been a DC-3 on display and it gets repainted once in a long while. Currently it is painted as an airliner for a tongue-in-cheek airline operation whimsically based out of Mangaweka—she is the Mangaweka Skyliner.  The site (associated building included) is for sale for those interested.

And this is how she looked a decade prior 🙂
