This image was taken for a story that ran in The Manawatu Evening Standard on 10 November, 1959. “The highlight during the military training period at the Palmerston North Boys’ High School yesterday for the Air Training Corps section was being able to listen to the pilot of a Vampire aircraft talk through the radio transmitter as he flew overhead. Flying Officer I. G. Gillies (right) called up the aircraft while the boys listened.”
