Armistice Day - 2018
New Zealand marks centenary
Armistice Day silence broken with a roaring chorus of noise as New Zealand marks centenary.
The bells rang out, horns blasted – Defence Force personnel across the country have marked a century since the end of the First World War with a mixture of silence and noise.

Monster Engines - that's a lot of grunt
Ulsan. Aotearoa’s two huge Rolls-Royce engines were recently installed. Weighing in at 60 tonnes each, these 5400kW monsters will propel the 26,000 tonne Aotearoa at 16 knots through the ocean. Putting out 7200 horsepower each, they’re the equivalent of 23 Holden Commodore V6’s all pulling in the same direction!
