An unusual visitor to Adelaide, this Air New Zealand DC-8 was here for the royal tour when Queen Elizabeth visited Australia and New Zealand. I can’t recall if this aircraft was the only one used for the whole tour to Australasia but it was in Adelaide to take the royal party to New Zealand.
This is a beautiful shot of Air New Zealand's DC8 NZE in Adelaide YPAD. They had lost one of their DC8's when they were absolutely brand new a/c in a training accident at AKL in about 1965. But I'm not sure what was the reg.

Great shot and catch of the Air New Zealand DC8! 5 *'s and more!

Thank you Chris. Quick bit of research - ZK-NZB was the aircraft that crashed, July 4 1966.

Thank you very much Darryl
Thanks Gavin, NZB in the winter of '66.
There is another aspect to this wonderful shot from October of '81 in Adelaide. It must have (sadly) been very close to the end of the DC8 chapter for Air NZ. But it had been barely 2 years since they had lost a DC10 series 30 on Mount Erebus in late '79 and they likely needed to keep the DC8 on for longer than originally planned to maintain their long haul fleet capacity. Either way, I'm glad they did!

Ah, it's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it:)

I wasn't sure, but I thought I had Super-8 footage of this on take off and oh yeah, found it. T'frd to DVD a few years ago with the intention of making it into a properly edited version. Boy does it need colour correction!

Frick! what a great shot! The other comments are great and I hope you can salvage the 8mm.....do you follow classic Airliners on FB...i think the guys name is Chris,,and he works wonders on old film...
20x stars here just to look.....wow!!

Thanks Tom. I don't know of Classic Airliners but nevertheless, it would be good to be able to fix up those old films. The video program I use has some capabilities, but more with colour correction and steadying jerky action. I've not investigated it fully - time and all those other life hindrances, lol.
