ZK-CLX    Lockheed L-188C Electra                         (c/n  2007)


                                      When TEAL wrote off their ZK-TEC* in a training accident on 27 March 1965, Qantas sold them
                                      VH-ECC to plug the gap in their fleet,  It became ZK-CLX and Greg Banfield saw it at Mascot on
                                      3 May 1965 just as it was about to depart for New Zealand. 

                                      The Electra, named "Akaroa", landed heavily following a flight idle approach to Whenuapai.
                                      One of the main gear legs failed and the aircraft caught fire.
