The weird and wonderful things about online trading

The Team from Community News

Hi Auckland,

What was your best purchase on an online marketplace, like Trade Me or Neighbourly?

A 1950s aircraft fuselage could be yours after a Waiuku resident listed their "old warbird" on Trade Me.

The Royal New Zealand Bristol Freighter flew as part of the Royal New Zealand Air Force during the Vietnam War. It was then purchased and shipped to Whenuapai-Ardmore in 1978 and then sold on to a Waiuku local. The sellers purchased the land at a later date, and thus the plane.

The listing starts at $18,000 and at time of publishing, has been added to almost 900 users' watchlists.
