Air force museum in Christchurch. The aircraft is displayed as NZ6001 "City of Auckland". The original Beaver was one of two Antarctic aircraft serving on the ice from 1956 with the Trans-Antarctic Expedition and was lost in an accident on the Beardmore Glacier in January 1960. In 1959 the aircraft was re-serialled NZ6010 when it was realised that NZ6001 was the number allocated to the Gloster Meteor.
