NZ History | Local Authors

On 12 October 1918, the New Zealand Flying School took possession of the first two Boeing aircraft ever made. Almost a century later aviation enthusiast Martin Butler goes in search of any remnants of these famous planes. His journey takes him to North Head, Devonport’s famous military landmark, which has long been the subject of rumours and urban myths about sealed-up tunnels and hidden rooms. Could the planes be buried in one of these ‘forgotten’ tunnels? After research and investigations spanning twenty years, Butler uncovers a trail of deception, confusion and cover-ups as he attempts to unravel the mystery of what lies beneath the surface of North Head.- Back Cover.
