A photograph in the same set as this was published September 1928 in the Manawatu Daily Times over the news heading "Steering a Plane". The caption underneath reads, "The Southern Cross at Sockburn - a photograph specially taken showing the huge wing-spread of the airplane which carried Kingsford-Smith and his companions to success in the trans-Tasman flight". The Southern Cross, piloted by Kingsford Smith, also landed in Palmerston North in 1933.
