  6. It seems obvious to me you are referring to the DC-3 in the picture which is located near the MacDonalds in Taupo, New Zealand.

  8. This is in Taupo, New Zealand. I don’t think this is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Hard to tell why you picked it. I found it by searching for the DC3 parked in front of a building. (Turns out to be McDonald’s)

    Update to this info:
    I googled a little and found this blogpost from August 2012:
    “During my visit to NZ, I heard that the DC3 at Taupo McD’s has been sold and is heading to Mystery Creek. Just wondering if anyone knows more.”
