Tail of British European Airways Vickers Viscount 701

"Photo taken by Pete Basire at Christchurch airport October 1953. My late father, Peter Basire, a keen plane enthusiast and photographer came to Christchurch from Wellington for the arrival of the planes in the Last Great Air Race: London to Christchurch October 1953. Peter Basire, took many photos of this event, he took many great photos of planes including planes in the air, the several photos I selected show people; including families and children, welcomes, a plane in motion, and planes being serviced. The British European Airways Vickers Viscount 701, near the hanger surrounded by admirers, the rear door is open and shows an air race banner on the inside of the door." - Contributor's note
