Douglas DC8 with Air New Zealand Postcard

Old Postcards showing classic aircraft of the past.

Welcome to the Aircraft section of Classic Wheels, a new site for everyone interested in preserved vehicles and historic transport.

This part of Classic Wheels contains scans of original postcards with an aviation theme to them, dating from way back when the Wright Brothers took their first tentative airborne hops, right through to Concorde, one of the few things we in the UK could be proud of (now sadly reduced to a silent relic in museums).

Please note that no postcard image on Classic Wheels is to be reproduced elsewhere, or directly linked to from other websites. I am not aware of any copyright on these images but if any images are under copyright, please get in touch and I will remove it, or credit it accordingly, asap.

Below is an original postcard, titled 'Douglas DC8 with Air New Zealand'.

This is postcard # 3 in this collection of aviation cards.

To see the other old aircraft postcards, visit the image list here and check out the other classic jets and prop planes of the past, in addition to this one of the Douglas DC8 with Air New Zealand.

More Information on this Douglas DC8 with Air New Zealand aeroplane postcard:

This postcard was issued by Air New Zealand in the 1960s and features the DC-8 airliner. According to the text on the rear of the card, the symbol on the tail fin is the Koru, which had its place on the sternposts of Maori canoes that sailed the Pacific ages back.
