DC-6 of TEAL in Fiji, 1950s

This was known as the hibiscus service from Auckland (a then 5-hour flight, now 3 hours on a jet) because passengers were given the flowers shown when they got off in Nadi (Nandi). The guy with the tunic was presumably a real policeman or soldier.

For more, see the book The Aircraft of Air New Zealand and affiliates since 1940 by Paul Sheehan.
