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.

Could you get more from your Vitamin C supplement?

Lipo Sachets

The body doesn’t produce or store vitamin C, which means many of us are missing out on its health-giving benefits. You should also consume it daily, not just in times of need.

Vitamin C Lipo-Sachets use patented technology to deliver a high dose of new generation liposomal vitamin C. They are proven to deliver 80% higher absorption than standard vitamin C* to help support your immune health and wellbeing.

Make sure your immune system is fighting fit for winter and beyond, by optimising your vitamin C intake.

Could you benefit from high dose liposomal vitamin C?

Ref: *Based on a clinical study comparing 10g Vitamin C Lipo-Sachets to 10g standard vitamin C. Maciej Lukawski (2019). Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare professional. Vitamins are supplementary to a balanced diet. AFT Pharmaceuticals Ltd, Auckland. TAPS PP7841
