Paul, In 1959 the Beverly XM104 "P" was in NZ for the opening of Rongotai (it was at Rotorua on 22-10-59) but it was in the silver/white scheme. This is the one I posted a shot of in my "stash" thread. Haven't come across any reference to a MEAF one yet. I think the FEAF ones were all in the silver/white scheme.
Guys, I was at the 1958 Ohakea show and took notes. I have a strong recollection of the day, but do not recall any "mystery" aircraft of the description given either. Dave, where can we view the list that Shorty provided to you? OJ
What some people don't know is that they don't know enough to know that they don't know anything

Another contender would be Portugese aircraft,they still had a presence in the Pacific in the 1950's and their aircraft had a large cross nearly like described,they operated PV-2 Harpoons and Beech 18 and 54's that had the right tail shape.I would guess Ohakea was not the right location,the old memory fades abit 50 years later.
