More Southern Cross Progress

Following the successful wing tests, HARS has forged ahead and reached a further milestone in the restoration to airworthiness of the Fokker F7/3M Southern Cross 2 with the delivery by Project Manager Geoff Timms of the spruce wood to begin the rebuild of the one piece wooden wing, and his collection of the three fully  overhauled and ready to fly propellors for the aircraft.  The aircraft fuselage also recently attended (on a truck) the 80th anniversary celebrations of the 1933 takeoff by the original Southern Cross from Seven Mile Beach at Gerroa NSW of its famous flight to New Zealand.
