ZK-AMO, a Short Solent flying boat.

This aircraft operated the final service on the Coral Route from Papeete (Tahiti) to Auckland (New Zealand), via Akaiamai (Cook Islands), Apia (Samoa) and Suva (Fiji).

The Coral Route was one of the last regularly scheduled international flying boat services, operated by TEAL - the predecessor to Air New Zealand.

MOTAT collection, Auckland, New Zealand.
