Wigram Air Force Base, Christchurch, New Zealand "Overwhelming!" was how Admiral Byrd described the response by the people of New Zealand to the Navy's stopover en route to Antarctica. The friendly New Zealanders hosted a parade with bagpipers and dances for their American visitors. "New Zealanders came by bus, bicycle, baby carriage and on foot. Groups picnicked in the shadows beneath the huge planes and on the airfield. The crowds blazed in colors." - Robert Charles Haun
