The Nelson Photo News



By Air and Sea


This sleek thoroughbred of the Cessna family, the six-seater 185 "Skywagon", has been bought and will be operated by Golden Coast Airways in the Nelson and Buller districts. Standing by plane, looking very proud, is pilot and managing director, Bill Evans. It is the only one of its kind in Australasia and will go into service shortly. In the meantime Bill's old Cessna (left) is still doing sterling service.


The Saracen, a lovely lady of the sea, made a brief visit to Nelson again last month to load meat for North American ports. This pic of her was taken by Geoff Tuffnell for "Photo News".
