Museum of Transportation - February 2000
Also, I visited the Transportation Museum in Auckland (MOTAT). This museum has an excellent example of a Lancaster Bomber, a Curtriss P-40,
Lockheed Electra, V-1 Buzz Bomb and a replica of a Fairey Swordfish.
V-1 Buzz Bomb
The V-1 was on top of a shed in the corner of the hanger.
Curtiss P-40 Warhawk
The P-40 was in New Zealand colors.
Lockheed 10 Electra
In the back corner of the hanger, MOTAT has a really nice Lockheed 10 Electra. This is the same type of aircraft used by Amelia Earhardt.
A superbly restored Lancaster is the showpiece of the Museum.
Fairey Swordfish Replica
There is a very good replica of a "Stringbag" next to the Lancaster.
