AUS AIRCRAFT TO NEW ZEALAND 

With the closing of the Bankstownbased Australian Aviation Museum, the fate of a number of the aircraft and artefacts there remained in doubt. Then from the shadows a white knight appeared in the form of New Zealander Jason Rhodes. Rhodes is the owner of the Wanaka Transport and Toy Museum. Over an extended period, he managed to obtain and export to Wanaka some 10 former Australian aircraft. These included a DH Vampire, a Sikorsky S-55 Helicopter and a circular home built. Another aircraft that generated more than a bit of interest was a MIG-15 fighter aircraft.
