ZK-AOE  Douglas DC-3CS1C3G                     (c/n   16383/33131)


                                        This is how the ex-military C-47s were delivered to the airlines at the end of WW II.  Now,
                                        this one was such a heap that it did not, in fact, enter passenger service, but was relegated to
                                        freight duties.  It crashed on a ridge at Port Underwood, (Marlborough Sounds, in the South
                                        Island) on 9 Aug 1948 killing the crew of two.
