Stuff.co.nz has posted a video showing a replica WWI Mark IV tank as well as a Panzer IV and a Stuart Light tank being loaded onto a ferry for transport from Wellington to Marlborough for the Classic Fighters air show.  The replica Mark IV was used in the 2008 short film “Crossing the Line” directed by Peter Jackson of Lord of the Rings and Hobbit fame.  Jackson is a WWI history buff who owns a nuber of planes from the era.  He has announced that he is planning to help launch a museum to commemorate World War I in Wellington NZ.
