1920s - 1930s: Lockheed 12a Electra Junior

The beautifully restored classic business aircraft belonging to ex-United Airlines Boeing 777 Captain Patrick Donovan, spent several years in New Zealand before heading back to the USA.

 

TakeoffA plan to fly the Lockheed to England in August 2000, and then follow the "Kangaroo Route" to Australia and on to New Zealand was thwarted when Pat reached Greenland but was unable to land due to low cloud. After several days of futile waiting on Baffin Island for the weather to clear, it was decided to flag the exercise and ship the aircraft direct to New Zealand.

As the aircraft was based at Omaka Aerodrome for a number of years, it was displayed at several airshows and other events around New Zealand, including the Warbirds Over Wanaka shows. It suffered some damage during a landing accident on the return journey from one of these shows, but it was repaired in New Zealand before once again heading across the Pacific.
