From Morning Report, 8:57 am on 26 March 2018

A sculpture of the Sunderland flying boats that once thundered in and out of a New Zealand air base in Fiji has been unveiled to mark 50 years since the Laucala Bay base closed. Seventy former Air Force personnel travelled to Suva to see the model of the flying boat, which has been made from parts of an old one, revealed as the sun set and the rain poured down. RNZ Pacific's Jamie Tahana went with them.
