Aircraft workers at Short Brothers and Harland in Belfast give a royal welcome to Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, during their tour of the hangar on their way to a naming ceremony. The royal couple named a four-engine Short Solent flying boat "Aotearoa 11", the first aircraft produced in Belfast by the Short concern. The Flying boat has been built for the Tasman Empire Airways, New Zealand, and is one of four to go into service on the New Zealand-Australia route.
