    The location here is Mangere airfield, South Auckland, New Zealand.

    The clip shows Jean Batten after completing the first ever direct flight from England to New Zealand.

    The aircraft she's seen landing in is a Percival Gull, Reg. No. G-ADPR.

    The man in the bowler hat at 00:11 is Mayor Ernest Davis.

    More footage of Jean Batten's arrival can be seen in clip 897.12.
