RNZAF Douglas DC-3/C-47 Dakota and a Mack truck at Paraparaumu airport, NZ, 1947

The aircraft, NZ3532, went to NAC in June that year. For lots more, see the book The Aircraft of Air Zealand and affililates since 1940

The airport was developed for military use during WW2 and continued in use for civilian purposes, largely replaced by Wellington airport in 1959.  Paraparaumu airport still exists, although is little used.
