short to medium range domestic routes. In response Lockheed developed the low wing L-
188 Electra powered by four sleek turboprops instead of the usual large radial engines or
altitude of 20,000 – 25,000 feet. When production ended in 1961 there had been 170
Electras completed.


ZK-TEB was the second of three L-188’s built for TEAL (Tasman Empire Airways
Limited) and named “Atarau (“Moonlight” in Maori). The aircraft made its first scheduled
flight on January 1, 1960. TEAL was partly owned by Australian and New Zealand
interests until 1961 when the New Zealand Government bought the Australian shares. In
1965 TEAL was renamed Air New Zealand. In 1972 ZK-TEB was sold to a U.S. company.
Over its lifespan this aircraft wore the names of nine different companies. In 2002 the
aircraft was with Atlantic Airlines and stored as G-LOFI.
