1943 DC3 Airplane McDonalds

1943 DC3 Airplane McDonalds
The owners of McDonald's Taupo are soaring on the news that their business has topped the list of the world's coolest top 10 McDonald's, sneaking in ahead of locations like Rome, Tokyo and New York. Foodie website The Daily Meal said: ''Taupo, New Zealand, has the honor of being home to the only McDonald's location that includes a decommissioned DC3 plane as part of the store. There are seats inside the plane for your dining enjoyment, and you can view the cockpit as well! Maybe they hand out wings to first-time customers.''The plane, a Douglas DC3 aircraft, was built in 1943 and was one of three used by South Pacific Airlines of New Zealand from 1961 to 1966. In 1971 it was renamed Whio and used by Fieldair Holdings as a top-dressing plane, before being decommissioned in 1984. Complete Story and Photos

Redwoods Treehouse Restaurant
Fine dining, corporate entertaining or simply a private party, this is one of the most striking, memorable and exclusive venues in all of New Zealand. A unique retreat just 45 minutes north of Auckland, the beautiful Redwoods Treehouse is the ideal venue to impress. The Redwoods Treehouse was commissioned as part of a marketing campaign by Yellow in 2008. The result is a striking pod-shaped structure built ten meters high in a Redwood tree near Warkworth, north of Auckland. Access to the Treehouse is provided by an elevated tree - top walkway which was built using Redwood milled on site. When the campaign was complete the ownership passed to the landowner. The Experience Group has secured the exclusive rights to manage this popular structure.   Complete Story and Photos
