The National Airways Corporation aeroplane ZK-APB ‘Popotea’, made by the Douglas Aircraft Co. (US), sits on the grass at what is thought to be Milson Airport. ZK-APB was the first NAC DC-3 to be properly fitted out as an airliner, rather than just an ex-military transport with basic seating. It was Ex-NZ3534 and left military service on 28 April 1947. It was flown to Melbourne to be refitted and to be renamed Popotea. It became a National Airways Corporation airliner DC-3D on 9 September 1947.
