Mt. Ruapehu ski trip - Cookie plane cafe

While on our way back, we came across the giant cookie DC3 plane café at Mangaweka. We made an impromptu decision to board the aircraft!

You actually operated the plane? Hmm....or was it a cafe inside the body of the plane? Sounds cool whichever it is.

Hi Doreen, love that DC3 plane. I remember sitting in a real old days...its one of the best and toughest planes built too...and a lot are still flying, in South America and parts of Asia.

Love your previous posting pics especially the black and white pics....gosh, you look like from Vogue mag, ha ha.
Stay beautiful, Doreen, best regards, Lee.

Haha, I wish I could operate the plane. It is a real plane turned into a cafe. Not sure if the engine still working or not though.

u.lee:

The boarding pass wouldn't be just two pieces of cake loh if it's moving. Hehehehe

trinity:
Hahaha, yeah I'm sure they will love it. There were a few kids there too, pretty excited about the plane.

keeyit:
It is more like a cafe I think. But it is a creative idea.

josephine:
